Energy from Waste and Waste Water

The advice that we give goes far beyond just the law to include advice on strategy and tactics, public policy and public affairs, communications and press relations issues.

Energy from Waste

As experienced infrastructure lawyers, we understand the challenges and complexities of gaining consent for a major scheme. With particular strength in the new Planning Act 2008 regime for Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects, our team is at the forefront of developments in relation to planning law.

In relation to waste infrastructure, the Planning Act applies to waste recycling schemes such as Energy from Waste plants and large scale hazardous waste facilities.

We can help you achieve successful delivery of your scheme from inception to operation and beyond with advice spanning:

  • Developing and implementing a land acquisition strategy
  • Environmental assessment
  • Hearings and inquiries
  • If needed, dispute resolution and litigation advice
  • Making, opposing and monitoring applications for development consent
  • Risk analysis and management
