Consents and Licensing

NIRAS has worked with major offshore wind farm developers in the delivery of comprehensive planning documents and licence agreements.

Our experience includes:

  • Strong understanding of the Development Consent Order (DCO) process for Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPS) especially offshore wind
  • Post application DCO process
  • Securing licences under Section 36 of the Electricity Act
  • Environmental Impact Assessment
  • Habitats Regulations Assessment
  • European Protected Species Licensing

Consultation plays a major role within the DCO process and key to delivery is building strong relationships with Statutory Nature Conservation Bodies such as Natural England, Scottish Natural Heritage, Marine Scotland, the Joint Nature Conservation Committee and the Marine Management Organisation. NIRAS keeps a close dialogue with these stakeholders in order to achieve mutually beneficial conclusions.
