New 50 Shades of Planning Podcast – Episode 24: DCOs, NPSs & NSIPs
Will the Government’s much vaunted radical reforms to the planning system allow Development Consent Orders (DCOs) to apply to large-scale, residential-led development proposals? It is an idea that has been around since DCOs, as wells as NPSs and NSIPs, were introduced by the Planning Act 2008, but perhaps now it’s time has come.
As well as considering the efficacy of the DCO regime as it relates to infrastructure projects, an expanded DCO regime is considered in a report by Barton Willmore, Copper, Womble Bond Dickinson and Hannah Hickman.
Sam Stafford discusses the report with co-authors:
- Tom Carpen, Infrastructure & Energy Planning Associate, Barton Willmore
- Kevin Gibbs, Senior Counsel & Head of Strategic Planning, Womble Bond Dickinson
- Hannah Hickman, Director, Hannah Hickman Consulting
