Major Infrastructure Projects

Acting for scheme promoters on all scales of development proposals from major infrastructure to statutory permitted development rights.

Our team has significant experience acting for scheme promoters (including interested and statutory parties) on major energy (onshore wind and solar), ports and highways schemes.

We support clients from project inception right through to delivery and beyond; including pre-application issues, the approach to consultation, environmental impact assessment compliance and reviews, habitats and biodiversity matters, secondary consents, compulsory purchase, advocacy at hearings, advising on development strategy, post-consent issues and judicial review.

As such, we have advised on some of the largest energy and waste projects in the UK promoted under the Planning Act 2008 as Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPs), as well as numerous Developments of National Significance (DNS) in Wales. We also advise extensively on schemes requiring consent under the Transport and Works Act, harbour empowerment & revision orders and marine licenses.

We consider ourselves to have one of the strongest DNS practices in the country, with members of the team having advised on the DNS process since its introduction in 2015. We are also fully conversant with policy in Wales having advised widely on Future Wales (including on the first post-Future Wales consented DNS), PPW and the TANs.
