Organiser: Beverley Watson
Location: Pinsent Masons, Manchester
Phone: 0161 604 7799

Infrastructure development remains a cross party political priority and there remains extensive media coverage on the regime for dealing with nationally significant infrastructure projects (NSIPs), the role of the Planning Inspectorate, and more recently the examination of major proposals relating to energy, transport, water, waste and waste water. This seminar will provide a timely opportunity to update, inform and provide answers for those concerned with Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPs) – as well as providing an indication of what changes may arise from the 2015 General Election.
