After the hearing

The Tribunal releases its report

After hearings are complete, the Tribunal panel writes a report that details its findings. The amount of time this takes varies and depends on a number of factors, including the size of an inquiry. This can take from a few days or weeks for urgent inquiries, up to several years for large and complex district inquiries. The Tribunal has released numerous and varied reports over the years, which are available to download or to purchase.
