The National Infrastructure Strategy: a plan for recovery

10 Dec 2020
In November 2020, the Prime Minister laid out his Ten Point Plan (Plan) (endnote 1) for a 'green industrial revolution' which has now been followed by publication of the National Infrastructure Strategy (NIS) (endnote 2), which focuses on 'economic' or 'networked infrastructure': energy, transport, water, waste, flood risk management and digital communications. In outlining how the Plan will be delivered the NIS goes further and sets out a step change in UK infrastructure policy and the intention to 'significantly shift spending to the regions and nations of the UK', in the period covered by the strategy, (five years). The Government intends to update its NIS every five years in response to future National Infrastructure Assessments.
