Standard description

National Infrastructure Commission 

The Commission is the body responsible for providing independent analysis and advice to the government to help the UK meets its long term infrastructure needs. Its role is to support sustainable economic growth across all regions of the UK, improve competitiveness, and improve quality of life. In doing so, it aims to be the UK’s most credible, forward-thinking and influential voice on infrastructure policy and strategy. The Commission publishes a National Infrastructure Assessment once in every Parliament setting out its assessment of long term infrastructure needs, with recommendations to the government, the first of which was published in July 2018. It also undertakes in-depth studies into the UK’s most pressing infrastructure challenges and monitors the government’s progress in delivering infrastructure projects and implementing recommendations made by the Commission.
