A public inquiry into the planning application to build Jersey's new hospital at Overdale begins today (4 April).
It will last for a week and assess the plans against the policies set out in the Island Plan.
The inquiry is being heard at the St Paul's Centre in St Helier and can be watched online.
The inspector Philip Staddon will deliver his report within four to six weeks, with the Environment Minister making his final decision in late May or early June on whether to grant permission.
Plans for a new £866m hospital at Overdale have hit several roadblocks.
In February, the Planning Committee blocked the demolition of existing buildings to clear the site.
Weeks later, in a statement submitted to the Public Inquiry, Senior Planning Officer Christopher Jones said he couldn't support the application for the new hospital because the harms would outweigh the benefits.
The planning application for the new hospital at Overdale was submitted last November.
