As another Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) has been accepted for examination by the Planning Inspectorate, Copper Consultancy has demonstrated continued excellence through its work on NSIPs across the UK.

Owing to the size and impact of NSIPs on the economy, schemes are considered under the Planning Act 2008. Under the Act, applicants apply for a Development Consent Order (DCO) from the relevant Secretary of State.

Copper has worked on over 20 NSIPs to date. Following on from the A30 Chiverton to Carland Cross, Manston Airport and the West Midlands Interchange this year alone, the acceptance of the scheme for the A303 past Stonehenge continues Copper’s 100% success rate for DCO applications.

We look forward to furthering our NSIP expertise long into the future.
