Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects affecting Runnymede

These projects, if they progress, will follow a streamlined progress for decision making for major infrastructure projects operated by the Planning Inspectorate, the government agency responsible for examining applications in the National Infrastructure Planning system.  This means some large scale infrastructure development within Runnymede will be considered by national Government rather than Runnymede Borough Council.

Details of how the process works can be found on the Planning Inspectorate website
