What happens next

We’ll hold a hearing to consider any relevant representation we receive, unless all parties agree that a hearing is unnecessary, or that they agree with the conditions.

If we do not receive any relevant representations, we’ll grant the licence.

The application is still subject to mandatory conditions and any conditions or restrictions outlined in the operating schedule.
