This rule contemplates that applicants will enter as exhibits, at the land use hearing, certificates from local authorities attesting to the fact that the proposal is consistent and in compliance with land use plans and zoning ordinances. In cases where this is done, such certificates will be regarded as prima facie proof of consistency and compliance with such land use plans and zoning ordinances absent contrary demonstration by anyone present at the hearing.
