With the recent Environmental Assessment of Sizewell C reaching an enormous 44,000 pages, complaints have been made that the Planning Act 2008, first introduced 15 years ago to deal with the authorisation of large infrastructure projects, is simply too slow.

In an article for the Telegraph, partners Mustafa Latif-Aramesh and Angus Walker discuss the contradiction between the urgent calls for new renewable infrastructure and necessary scrutiny in the planning process. In the article they go on to suggest evolutionary (rather than revolutionary) changes could be made to the regime to restore and improve its original efficiency.

Subscribers can read the full article on the Telegraph website.
