Launch of The NIPA Award 2023

October 3, 2023

The Award builds on NIPA’s Insights II and Insights III research projects published in 2019 and earlier this year, which have focused on building trust, providing evidence, ensuring appropriate controls and effective delivery. NIPA would like submissions that demonstrate best practice in participating in the Development Consent Order process for an NSIP.

Submissions for NSIPs consented between 01 October 2022 and 30 September 2023, using the NIPA 2023 Award Submission Form and following the NIPA 2023 Award Submission Guidance, should be sent to by 6.00pm on Monday 23 October 2023.

A panel of independent judges will meet to consider submissions, and the winner of the 2023 Award will be announced at NIPA’s Annual Dinner on 16 November 2023.

Before making your submission please read the Award Submission Guidance carefully, and we look forward to receiving your entries showcasing best practice and innovation in planning for and delivering NSIPs.

Should you have any queries please contact

With best wishes (and the best of luck!)

NIPA Board Secretary
