A design-led approach to infrastructure

A design-led approach to infrastructure

1 November 2012

Our guide to the design of Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPs) for energy, transport, water, waste water and waste as defined in the Planning Act 2008.

The design guidance is based on ten design principles to help NSIP applicants create successful proposals meeting the criteria for good design set out in the National Policy Statement. The National Policy Statement makes it clear NSIPs must make design an integral part of their planning process and demonstrate that good design and the concerns of communities and stakeholders have been taken on board.
