Planning - England and Wales
The Infrastructure Act 2015 (Commencement No. 2 and Transitional Provisions) Regulations 2015 brings two sections of the Act into force. The first section commenced enables earlier appointment of examining authorities as soon as development consent applications for nationally significant infrastructure projects are accepted.
The second section commenced provides powers to refuse applications for orders to change or revoke existing development consent orders, where these should constitute an application for a new development consent order.
