The Hearing phase:

  • Submitters and/or further submitters who have requested to be heard in support of their submission will have the opportunity to speak to a Hearing Panel from mid-2024 onwards.
  • Closer to the time, we will get in contact with submitters by using the Address for Service provided in each submission. If you are a submitter and/or further submitter and wish to update this Address for Service, please email
  • A Hearings Panel will listen to submitters over the course of the hearing
  • In advance of each hearing stream, documents are released to help inform the hearing panel. (These may include S42A reports, technical evidence, legal submissions, and rebuttal reports).
  • The Friend of Submitter service is available during the hearing phase for submitters to use if support is needed in preparing for your hearing. The Friend of Submitters is fully independent and has not been involved in developing the Proposed Change 1. You can contact them by sending an email to:

More information relating to the hearings phase will be released on this page in due course.
