Matthew Fox will give an online lecture about the statutory planning consent process.

The majority of large infrastructure projects are now consented through a process under the Planning Act 2008 known as the Development Consent Order (DCO) process.
 
This is a legalistic process, but also one that relies heavily on the input of engineers. Engineers create statutorily required documentation, inform the compulsory acquisition and environmental choices that are made to help facilitate the project, and undertake the work to envisage detailed methodologies at a preliminary design stage.
 
This presentation will explain the complex DCO process, with an emphasis on the role of the engineer and how their input can make a difference to the client. The framework, within which the DCO process operates, will also be explained.
