Many existing facilities are nearing the end of their operational lives. Investment is essential but constrained by emissions legislation.
Despite this, rapidly increasing demand for power has led to a change in government policy and new development is inevitable.
Within the nuclear sector, our acquisition of GVA Dixon Webb has added 40 years of nationwide experience working with BNFL, NDA, URENCO, RWE and Horizon Nuclear Power. We have been directly involved with the sale and purchase of land for new nuclear development, facilitating land investigation works and managing existing occupiers. We have provided land agency and management services for non-operational holdings and are the retained land agents for NuGen. We also provide business rates advice to a number of clients in this sector.
Our experience in the thermal energy generation sector ranges from extensive site selection exercises to delivering consents for major new generating plants. We are currently progressing nationally significant proposals through the Infrastructure Planning Unit and Section 36 consenting processes.
