The Government are holding a National Infrastructure Planning Reform Programme Consultation – click here to find out more. To put that into simpler terms as it’s a bit official! Projects like the proposed Lower Thames Crossing are considered Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPs), ie a very large project that is considered to be important to the nation. These NSIPs have their own version of a planning application process, which is called a Development Consent Order (DCO). This consultation is all about that process because the Government want to speed the process up. However, in ours and others opinion the process is already very rushed.
The consultation asks a series of questions, which you can view, along with our official consultation response:TCAG Response to National Infrastructure Planning Reform Programme Consultation
