The National Infrastructure Planning Association Award for Best Project 2023

We continue to drive to identify and showcase best practice with the consenting of projects through the Development Consent Order process.

The Award builds on NIPA’s Insights II Research Project published in 2019, which focused on building trust, providing evidence, ensuring appropriate controls and adaptive delivery.

NIPA invites submissions that demonstrate best practice in undertaking the DCO process. Submissions should be for DCO applications determined between 01 October 2022 and 30 September 2023.


  • NIPA invites submissions: Monday 02 October
  • Submissions due: Monday 23 October
  • Award presented at the NIPA Annual Dinner: Thursday 16 November
