The commissioners have launched a consultation into the process and methodology of the National Infrastructure Assessment (NIA), which it is required to publish once a parliament.

The NIC is consulting on how it intends to take that work forward.

Interim chair Lord Adonis said: “The NIC was established to transform the way we plan and deliver major infrastructure in this country – the National Infrastructure Assessment will be central to that task.

“The NIA will be an enormous piece of work, but the prize is greater still. Our national infrastructure affects every aspect of our daily lives, and costs us billions each year to develop and maintain.

“Developing a serious and strategic long-term approach will help reduce unnecessary delay, costs and congestion. The NIA will secure better infrastructure for us all, more value for money for the taxpayer, and greater certainty and security for investors.”

The National Infrastructure Assessment Process and Methodology Consultation can be found on gov.uk (click to open in new tab).
