Nisse joined Newgate in February 2012, after four-and-a-half years as a director at Fishburn Hedges.
He has a track record of stories about the nuclear industry, from exposing a secret Government plan to bail out the beleaguered nuclear company British Energy, to revealing that BNFL has been shooting and secretly storing nuclear-contaminated seagulls at Sellafield.  
Links with nuclear industry
Nisse is a former non-executive director of Nirex, the now disbanded UK government company that advised on options for the long-term disposal of radioactive materials. Nirex announced his appointment on 25 November 2005.  
Nisse announced the appointment in the Independent on Sunday:
- Last week, I became a non-executive director of Nirex, the Government-owned body charged with building a repository to store nuclear waste. Just to put it in context, no decision has been made to build a repository, but a recommendation is due to come next year from the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management, which could lead to a repository being built. Before accepting this post, both I and the editors and managers here considered whether this might cause a conflict of interest. However, as I have long held the view that a repository for nuclear waste needs to be built and have said so in these pages, we felt the risk was minimal. If serious conflicts do occur, my primary duty is to the readers of the Independent on Sunday, and I will stand down from Nirex. 
Advice on challenging planning projects
- Our experience shows that for the most difficult schemes, having all the bases covered is essential. So good community engagement can be undermined if you do not have strong, responsive media relations able to rapidly rebut any negative comments. Gaining political cover from MPs – or being aware of what issues will bring attacks from politicians – makes your life infinitely easier when dealing with the media and communities. Also, 24/7 monitoring of social media – even if you never engage with it (as we didn’t with Third Energy) – is impossible to do without.
- Finally, the job of the consultant is often to be the conscience of the client – asking “have we disclosed all we can?”, “did we tell x this?” or “when are we doing what we promised at the meeting on y?”
- Critically, I would advise anyone working on a project to try to avoid being drawn into national debates. Tempting though it may be to argue with The Guardian about whether gas is a bridging technology to zero carbon future, local issues carried in local media and discussed in the local pub will hold more sway. Think global, but act local.
