Instead of the application being initially determined on the papers without a hearing, with an automatic right to an oral hearing in the event of refusal, the application will be determined on the papers unless the court considers that it should be determined at an oral hearing.

Thus a review of a decision of a court officer by a single judge and similarly a reconsideration by a judge of a decision made by a single judge will be undertaken on the papers unless the judge determines there should be an oral hearing which the judge must do if of the opinion that the matter cannot be fairly determined without an oral hearing.
