The importance of proactive collaboration

DCOs streamline the planning procedure for NSIPs, such as energy facilities, transport networks, and large-scale developments. They involve navigating complex procedural frameworks with the stated aim of making decisions fairer and faster for both communities and applicants.

Our comprehensive planning and design services encompass every stage of the DCO process, from initial feasibility studies to submission, examination and post-order obligations. We recognise the importance of proactively collaborating with clients, stakeholders, and regulatory authorities to demonstrate deliverability, mitigate risk and comply with relevant planning policy.

We are adept at negotiating the nuances of the DCO procedure and with experience gained over a decade of successful involvement with strategic rail freight interchanges and renewable energy facilities, we fully understand the differing requirements of DCOs when compared to conventional planning applications.
