Major infrastructure projects, including NSIPs

Suffolk sees many major infrastructure projects coming forward. Some of them are Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPs). Find out more here.

Suffolk's role in major infrastructure projects

Suffolk County Council has a key role in major infrastructure projects as a statutory consultee, and a representative of our communities, but is not a decision maker for these projects. SCC is recognised nationally as a Centre of Excellence for NSIPs and has developed significant levels of expertise to deal with these projects.

We offer information about major infrastructure projects in Suffolk, guidance for project promoters. We also offer to share our expertise to other local authorities involved in NSIPs.
