Examination hearing sessions

The hearing sessions of the examination will start on Wednesday 13 February 2019 and are likely to be held over a two week period with a break for half term. Further hearings may be programmed but we don't expect these will be needed at this stage. 

The start time of the hearings may vary so please check the programme carefully. Unless otherwise stated, the hearings will be held in the Council Chamber, Cheltenham Borough Council, Municipal Offices, Promenade, Cheltenham GL50 9SA.
