Energy and infrastructure

From new nuclear and unconventional gas to renewables, waste and airports, our team has worked across the UK to help create vital new infrastructure.

Our team has specific experience of NSIP consultations and the Planning Act 2008 and we have devised and implemented engagement and consultation programmes to work directly with communities potentially hosting new infrastructure.

Projects executives have handled include: solar projects, tidal energy, energy from waste plants, additional runways, new nuclear, and unconventional gas projects.
