Advice provided by officials to Scottish Ministers will provide factual information on the responses from consultees and a recommendation, both of which inform ministers’ decision whether or not to refer an application to public local inquiry. The minute of appointment of the reporter to a public local inquiry may also provide the reporter with some background on the grounds for holding the inquiry.

Scottish Ministers have discretion in the matter of whether or not to limit the scope of a public local inquiry.
