Planning and consenting

The team is experienced in delivering high quality planning submissions for a range of energy and infrastructure related projects, with an in-depth knowledge of wind energy and other renewable energy technologies.

The group comprises several chartered and experienced planning consultants, based in England and Scotland, who are skilled in taking projects from an initial site finding or feasibility stage, through to environmental appraisal and assessment and the submission of planning applications and other consent applications.  The team is experienced in delivering high quality planning submissions for a range of energy related projects as well as infrastructure and residential schemes; with a particular expertise in wind energy and other renewable energy technologies.

TNEI has wide ranging experience in both leading and supporting developers in pre and post application submission liaison with statutory and non-statutory consultees.  The Group works with developers to undertake community consultation (including meetings and exhibitions), manage public consultation and produce and design presentation material.

Senior members of the team have expertise in preparing and presenting evidence for planning appeals, managing input from other experts and reviewing and 'inquiry proofing' evidence and original planning application documentation. 

TNEI has contributed to a number of key renewable energy policy and guidance documents at local, regional and national levels.

Since starting planning work in 2005, the group has been particularly successful in consenting a large number of commercial scale wind turbine projects. A planning applications and consenting map can be found here.
