Detail of outcome
The government has now considered the evidence it received. The vast majority of responses were highly supportive of the creation of the commission, particularly the aim of improving long-term infrastructure planning. This document summarises the evidence obtained and sets out the government’s response.
The government intends to introduce legislation to place the commission on a permanent, independent footing as soon as parliamentary time allows.
This consultation seeks views on the proposed governance, structure and operation of the National Infrastructure Commission. The commission was launched on 5 October 2015 and has been working in shadow form since then. The views expressed will help to inform legislation which will establish the commission in permanent form. The government would welcome views from all interested parties, including regulators, industry experts, lawyers and investors.
