What is a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project?
London Paramount Entertainment Resort is classified as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) under the Planning Act 2008. This means that LRCH is required to apply to the Government for a Development Consent Order (DCO). This application will be made in 2017.
NSIPs are major infrastructure developments in England and Wales, such as power plants and major road projects, which are considered to be of national importance. From early 2014 the range of schemes capable of being classified as an NSIP has been expanded to include major leisure, sports stadia and business schemes if they are of sufficient scale and represent a substantial economic dividend.
