The NIPA Award 2023 Winner

November 23, 2023

The National Infrastructure Planning Association Award is for what is judged to be “Best Project” and is designed to identify and showcase best practice in the planning, design, development and delivery of Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects. This year submissions were invited to include best practice and the benefits that this has brought to the project, the developer, key stakeholders and host communities; to show how good design, climate change, environmental and project delivery considerations have been integrated into the project; and to set out how NIPA EYPs were involved.

We were delighted to present the NIPA Award 2023 to
