Gas Network Reinforcement Consultant Consents Officer

A Stephenson Halliday Technical Director was approached by National Grid to take on the role of a Consultant Consents Officer to drive the preparation of the Strategic Options Appraisal for this potential DCO project to reinforce the Gas National Transmission System.

The role has required liaison with engineering, environmental, commercial and consents teams to ensure a comprehensive review of options was completed to justify the scheme being taken forward. This has included various decision making and challenge and review workshops that have led to the identification of an emerging preferred option captured within a public facing Strategic Options that will ultimately form part of the consultation and potential DCO submission material as the project progresses.

As the project has progressed our TD has also been involved in the route options appraisal process providing a challenge and review function of the route corridor definition process and option selection approach.
