      Grid and infrastructure planning

      We’ll help you navigate the complex world of power grid planning, minimising your risk and managing the consultation process from start to finish.

      Our understanding of the power distribution network helps us communicate with stakeholders during the planning application and consenting process and oversee the consultants you’ll need to secure permission.

      We work closely with the distribution network operator for the South Eastern regions - UK Power Networks - helping them develop schemes to connect future development to the electrical grid, this work means we understand the activities of statutory undertakers in depth.

      By maintaining dialogue and communication between UK Power Networks and the customer we make sure the delivery team is meeting expectations and hitting the milestones set by both parties. 

      In fact, we often act as a one stop shop for UK Power Networks. Taking on all activities associated with achieving planning consent for power infrastructure of varying scales. This includes managing stakeholders, technical consultants and the Local Planning Authority.  

      We can act as the bridge between technical experts and those new to the market. Painstakingly working through the planning process, making sure everyone understands the risks and doing everything in our power to minimize them.
