The Commission's Design Group has identified four principles to guide the planning and delivery of major infrastructure projects: climate, people, places and value.
These principles, developed by the Commission’s Design Group in consultation with all infrastructure sectors, were created to guide the future projects which will upgrade and renew the UK’s infrastructure system. They should be applied to all economic infrastructure: digital communications, energy, transport, flood management, water and waste.
As part of its work developing the principles, the Design Group commissioned supporting research from Frame Projects – a literature review and primary research – which can be found in the Supporting Evidence tab.
