As these examples indicate, our practice covers a wide range of infrastructure projects, whether consented by Development Consent Order, Transport and Works Act Order, planning permission or hybrid Bill.

In addition to our market-leading reputation for guiding infrastructure projects through the planning/development consent process, and advising those affected by such projects,  we have advised on many related issues including compulsory purchase of land and rights, land compensation, public procurement and competition issues, planning and regulatory controls, rights of way and highways, railway powers, transport, energy and waste policy, environmental protection, EU and UK legislation on the protection of habitats, EIA, SEA and sustainability appraisal, public consultation procedures, the Aarhus Convention, human rights and constitutional law, and the rating of transport, energy, electronic communications and waste infrastructure.
