Webinar: Development Consent Orders for Pipeline NSIPs (Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects)

This webinar will be hosted by The Midland Branch of The Pipeline Industries Guild. Under the Planning Act 2008 a developer intending to construct an NSIP must obtain a Development Consent Order (DCO). The Planning Inspectorate reviews and examines applications for a DCO, with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy able to grant a DCO.

 

Partner, Mark Gilkes (Fisher German) and Senior Associate Claire Brodrick (Pinsent Masons) have accumulated significant experience in this field and talk to PIG about the thresholds, process, the challenges, the benefits and how this will impact on pipeline schemes now and in the future.

NSIP Applies to:

  • High pressure gas transporter pipelines over 40km
  • Other pipelines (e.g. oil, gas, aviation fuel, carbon dioxide) over 16.093 km
  • Pipelines for the transfer of water resources over 100 million cubic metres p/a
  • Pipelines for the transfer of waste water with a storage capacity of over 350,000 cubic metres

In addition, the majority of NSIPs have some impact on existing utilities. It is therefore useful to understand the regime to ensure that existing apparatus is adequately protected or diverted.
