Prior to the Inquiry, it was announced that it would start at 10am on the first day, and would only continue beyond the first day if there was a need to do so, and that as a result anybody wishing to give evidence should attend the start of the Local Inquiry. In practice, the Local Inquiry started and finished on Thursday 22 October.

As a result of the nature and number of representations received, the Local Inquiry was into the Commission's Provisional Proposals for the regions of East Central Scotland; Highlands and Islands; Lothian; South Scotland; and West Central Scotland. The Local Inquiry did not consider the Provisional Proposals for the regions of Glasgow; Mid Scotland and Fife; and North East Scotland. For these regions, the Commission considered all representations received when deciding upon its Revised Recommendations.

The report from the Local Inquiry was added to this page when the Commission published its Revised Recommendations for regions.
