HSE and CCS planning

England and Wales

HSE is a statutory consultee for all Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPs) in England and Wales. Developers of NSIPs and the Planning Inspectorate (formerly the Infrastructure Planning Commission) have a statutory duty to consult HSE where a project is a large-scale facility that supports the UK economy and is vital public services. Where CCS projects are NSIPs, HSE would be consulted.


In Scotland, the Scottish Government has a role similar to the Planning Inspectorate in England and Wales.
