Webinar round up: Progressing DCO projects during COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected infrastructure planning and has resulted in DCO delays for nationally significant infrastructure projects.

Our webinar on Thursday 14 May focused on progressing DCO projects during COVID-19.

Angus Walker, partner in our planning, infrastructure and public law team, provided a presentation and discussion, covering:

  • difficulties doing site surveys;
  • difficulties doing land referencing;
  • not being able to deposit or inspect physical documents;
  • inability to hold physical consultation events;
  • inability to hold physical hearings; and
  • difficulties implementing DCOs.

The session also referred to Angus Walker’s paper summarising NIPA’s advice and tailoring it to applicants.

The full webinar is now available on our YouTube channel:
