POS Welcomes Intention that Proposals for New Coal and Oil & Gas Development Will Not be Included in New Business and Commercial Category of NSIP Projects

Date: 25/6/2013

The Goverment's response to  the Major infrastructure planning: extending the regime to business and commercial projects consultation is welcomed, says POS, in so far as proposals for new coal development and oil and gas development will not be included in the new business and commercial category. 

John Silvester, Spokesperson for the Society, told Planning magazine that "This was one of the major planks of our consultation response in that we believe such proposals should properly be dealt with under Town & Country Planning legislation."

Silvester added that the Soicety would be monitoring the situation as the Government would be reviewing its position on the matter.
