Rising demand for energy is highlighting the urgent requirement for new and upgraded infrastructure.
We have extensive experience in planning for substations, converter stations, pipelines, cabling and other infrastructure necessary for the operation of the UK’s electricity grid.
We have secured a range of consents for major linear developments,including underground cabling, overhead lines and pipelines. Our comprehensive consenting strategies make best use of potential permitted development rights, minimising the risk to project delivery.This approach also ensures maximum flexibility in routing and infrastructure design, reducing the risk of the need for expensive engineering solutions caused by restrictive consents.
We are experienced in negotiating wayleaves and access rights for major linear development projects through both urban and rural areas. In addition, we have dedicated compulsory purchase experts with extensive UK-wide experience in this field.
