Major infrastructure projects
Major infrastructure projects (MIPs) are large developments such as nuclear power stations, biomass plants and new road schemes.
The Government introduced a new process to make decisions on the development of major projects in the 2008 Planning Act.
When the process starts, there is only 6 months for the examination to take place.
This is when you need to submit written representations, and you also have a right to an open-floor hearing. There may also be issue specific hearings.
