UCL have undertaken a major interdisciplinary study of NSIPs, investigating evidence and public participation in the statutory decision-making processes for England and Wales. The report considers the involvement of the public in the DCO process, recounting the ability of the public to influence decision making, and the public’s reaction to the process.

Join us for our panel discussion and get involved in the debate. This is the first research study to focus specifically on public participation as a principal theme and our panel discussion will explore UCL’s findings and highlight the key issues that are to be examined going forward, looking at best practice and next steps.

  • Yvonne Rydin, UCL
