2  LPA specialist input to plan production eg SEA expertise, development management team review of policies – can make a big difference in ensuring basic conditions and other requirements are met at examination  try to resolve any LPA/QB differences before submission plan stage – examiners recommend modifications only to meet the basic conditions and convention rights  co-ordinate LPA and QB publicity/websites

3  an examination where the questions are known - there are no surprises – what an examiner can consider is precisely defined  look at examination reports already issued  consider an independent ‘health check’ review – usually undertaken in a few days

5  independent desk-based review undertaken by a qualified and experienced examiner  most beneficial at pre-submission stage  identifies issues that may cause delay or rejection at examination  considers problems in meeting the basic conditions and other requirements  provides general advice on changes that need to be made

6  begin sourcing after pre-submission consultation  LPA appointment - but QB consent required  if using NPIERS the LPA/QB should complete the request form together  highlight key issues and particular areas of expertise required - eg regeneration, rural, heritage  indicate timing of examination - assists checking examiner availability  be realistic about risk/professional indemnity

7  applications usually sufficient to appoint - NPIERS provide CV, photo, and suitability statement from 3 potential examiners  if questions - consider or phone  if interview essential - LPA and QB should be represented- deal with process, skills and experience -not the merits of the plan  try to feedback to unsuccessful candidates

8  LPA and examiner contract directly  agree invoicing arrangements  nominate a single LPA point of contact  agree means of communication  LPA provide complete documentation – agree format  agree anticipated timeline  examiner will visit the area - normally unaccompanied - consider access

9  examination by consideration of written representations is the general rule  LPA should issue guidance - representations to address the basic conditions and other tests  late representations not normally considered  LPA listing of representations helpful to the examiner

10  if examiner decides a hearing is necessary LPA and examiner must agree roles  examiner role - identify topic(s) for consideration, parties to speak in addition to LPA and QB, take charge of proceedings including recording, social media rules  LPA role - notice, venue, invitations, also consider accessibility, parking, toilets, refreshments, PA equipment  examiner may request the LPA to note take
