More writing for the BCT 'Planning and Designing Large Scale Surveys' course. Slightly complicated by the fact that the Infrastructure Planning Commision (IPC) which would have dealt with major infrastructure projects will hand over it's responsibilities to the Planning Inspectorate on the 1st April 2012 as part of the Localism Act (2011). This means that the planning process (and hence enivironmental impact assessments) are somewhat in limbo until there is a bit more of a steer on how the new processes will work. At least the course will be hot of the press.
