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.
