High quality infrastructure is crucial for supporting business growth.

The Government established the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) in 2015 to provide impartial, expert advice on major long-term infrastructure challenges.

The NIC published their first National Infrastructure Assessment (NIA) last year, setting out their assessment of the UK’s long-term infrastructure needs.

The NIA made over 60 recommendations, and the Government is planning to respond in full to all of the recommendations through a National Infrastructure Strategy, to be published later this year.
