Electricity & Gas transmission

Against a backdrop of rapidly changing patterns of generation and use of energy and under detailed scrutiny from regulators, Stephenson Halliday has a wide range of capability to support electricity and gas transmission infrastructure projects. Our experience encompasses projects progressed using permitted development rights as well as applications via TCPA and as NSIP’s. Our activities support the evolution of existing assets whether it is applications or landscape design work for substation extensions, new AGI’s or OHL refurbishment or uprating. For new infrastructure we undertake initial strategic option development and detailed siting and routeing studies that help to define the most economic and effective solutions and also complete detailed assessments, provide support with consultation & stakeholder engagement and prepare robust ‘inquiry ready’ application material.

We draw from the expertise and passion of our staff and trusted partners to provide a comprehensive range of planning, landscape, environment and project management services to help you understand how to support or enhance your existing operations or to successfully deliver new development projects. We provide a bespoke and collaborative approach and from our office presence in England, Scotland and Ireland are well placed to advise on projects whatever the planning jurisdiction, size or location.
The following projects provide a snapshot overview of the range of projects we have worked on but cannot cover every example.
