The road to the Inquiry was long and, for most objectors and onlookers, impossibly difficult to follow. The key milestones leading to the date when the Inquiry was announced can now be found in the Archive section of this website. Follow the link (on the margin on the right) to see previous pages.

All the documents relating to the Inquiry are available on the website of the government-run Planning and Environmental Appeals Division. That is found at
http://www.dpea.scotland.gov.uk. The case reference for the Inquiry into the A9 Dualling, Killiecrankie to Glen Garry scheme, is CPO-340-4.

There are over 1,600 documents relating just to the Inquiry. These include all the objections, the studies that were done at all stages of road planning, correspondence between Transport Scotland and relevant parties, evidence in support of respective claims and our submissions.

In addition to the written submissions kept on the DPEA website, the oral evidence given at the main inquiry was recorded and telecast. The videos are available on
http://www.dpea.public-i.tv and the sessions relating exclusively to Killiecrankie battlefield issues are found by searching the same case reference of CPO-340-4.

Our position aligned with that of many other participating objectors. To help streamline the process, the submissions were made in the name of the Combined Group of Objectors. Our documents include:


Our final document was submitted on 17 March 2020 at the invitation of the Reporter when Transport Scotland lodged additional documents after the deadline. Although we were surprised at the unusual timing of this submission, we think the documents reveal much of Transport Scotland’s attitude and practice.

Like everything else, the course of the Inquiry was overtaken by Covid in 2020. The reporter will not make his recommendation(s) to the Scottish Ministers until 2021. A number of events that occurred after the close of the official Inquiry in January 2020, including Transport Scotland’s late submission, are discussed in the
Post PLI page.
