Planning Act 2008: Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects. The Infrastructure Planning Commission and the Implications for the Rural Practice Surveyor, Landowner, Occupier and Other Professional Advisers.

A 14 page conference paper presented at the 2010 RICS Roots Rural Research Conference aimed at land agents etc who have to deal with Nationallly Significant Infrastructure Proposals.

Year of Publication2010

Nationally Significant Infrastructure Proposalss include major power stations, large windfarms, trunk roads and power lines etc. New procedures came into effect at the start of March 2010 to speed up approval of these projects, and there are significant implications for practitioners. The purpose of this note is to provide an introductory briefing for rural practitioners, landowners and occupiers. In particular the note is focussed on the advice likely to be needed by landowners and occupiers whose land may be subject to compulsory acquisition proposals. The work of the IPC is briefly reviewed, before identifying the particular aspects in which rural property advisers are likely to be involved and discussing the scope for effective representation of clients’ interests. Comments would be welcome from practitioners, promoters or others with a view to further development of the note as experience with the new approaches develops.
