Nick advises on planning, infrastructure consenting and compulsory purchase, including on projects of regional and national significance.
Nick was involved in all phases of the DCO process with respect to the White Rose Carbon Capture and Storage project. Nick’s knowledge was pivotal in explaining the process and offering advice and guidance in navigating each phase of the process as well as identifying key risks and actions needed to mitigate these risks and ensuring that activities had been correctly programmed to meet the relevant project milestones. It is important to recognise that Nick had to explain the processes and guide what was a multi-national project team with no experience of the Planning Act and its associated complexities. What was particularly key was the communication and relationship developed with Drax Power Limited and the Drax project team.
