Specially vulnerable areas: Before approving the draft delimitation order the Prime Minister shall arrange for a public enquiry, at which enquiry the Agency shall present the draft Delimitation Order for discussion. The Agency shall, by notice in the Official Gazette and at least one newspaper published in Saint Christopher and Nevis, invite submissions from the public relating to the contents of a draft special area precautionary plan. The Agency shall allow a period of not less than four weeks and not more than eight weeks for the receipt by it of such submissions. From the date of the invitation of submissions from the public, the Agency shall, on written application by any person, permit access to any technical studies used in the preparation of the draft special area precautionary plan. After the public enquiry has been held, the Agency shall consider what, if any, revisions ought to be made in the draft special precautionary plan in light of the proceedings of the public enquiry, and resubmit the draft plan to the Prime Minister with such revisions, if any.
