LISTEN TO PODCAST

The Planning Podcast turns to infrastructure. Richard Kimblin QC interviews Angus Walker, Chair of the Board of the National Infrastructure Planning Association:

  • progress with the consenting of infrastructure projects during the emergency
  • whether consenting procedures might actually be better after the emergency
  • infrastructure and economic recovery.

And ‘Drax’  - a case with a mix of Net Zero, a DCO and a late letter to the Secretary of State -  Hugh Richards, planning and environmental barrister at No5 Chambers takes us through the facts, the issues and the practical points arising.

And there are some follow-up materials here: Hugh Richard’s summary note, and details of the NIPA webinars; and covid solutions.
