Detail of outcome
A summary of responses, and the government’s response to the consultation on ‘Major infrastructure planning: expanding and improving the ‘one stop shop’ approach for consents’.
On 6 September 2012, the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister set out a major package of reforms to housing and planning to help create conditions for economic growth. This announcement included a commitment to ‘work to extend the principle of a one-stop-shop for non-planning consents for major infrastructure’.
The aim of this consultation is to seek views from interested bodies on what consents should be moved within the scope of an expanded ‘one stop shop’ for major infrastructure and on proposals for streamlining the current list of statutory consultees that developers are required to consult before applying for a development consent order.
In a separate consultation we are seeking views on proposals to extend the nationally significant infrastructure planning regime to business and commercial projects.
