Consultation description

This consultation seeks views on including proposed major sewers within the existing streamlined planning process for other major infrastructure projects, by introducing secondary legislation.

The proposed legislation is known as an Order made under section 14 of the Planning Act 2008. It would enable proposed major wastewater transfer and storage infrastructure projects (sewers) to undergo the same streamlined planning application process as other major infrastructure projects such as large sewage treatment works and power stations. The Planning Act 2008 establishes thresholds for certain types of major infrastructure projects in the fields of energy, transport, waste, wastewater and water to be classed as Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPs). This streamlines their planning process by enabling sponsors of NSIPs to make a single application for a Development Consent Order to the Infrastructure Planning Commission (IPC), or its successor.

Consultation on Streamlining the Planning Process for Nationally Significant Wastewater Transportation Infrastructure Projects finishes on 05 October 2011 - Don’t miss the chance to respond.
