Development consent order

Applicants promoting nationally significant infrastructure projects in the fields of energy, transport, water and waste will apply for a 'development consent order' rather than for planning permission under the Planning Act 2008. A development consent order, when issued, combines the grant of planning permission with a range of other consents that in other circumstances have to be applied for separately, such as listed building consent. All applications for development consent orders will be made to the Infrastructure Planning Commission (IPC).
