National Infrastructure Commission
The Commission is the body responsible for providing independent analysis and advice to government to help the UK meet its long term infrastructure needs. Its objectives are to support sustainable economic growth across all regions of the UK, improve competitiveness, improve quality of life, and support climate resilience and the transition to net zero carbon emissions by 2050. The Commission publishes a National Infrastructure Assessment every five years setting out its assessment of long term infrastructure needs, with recommendations to the government; the second Assessment was published on 18 October 2023.
The Commission 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.
