POLICY & EXTERNAL AFFAIRS.
REPRESENTING OUR MEMBERS
AT THE HEART OF GOVERNMENT.
POLICY AND PUBLIC AFFAIRS
We draw on our members’ expertise and knowledge to respond to consultations and positively contribute to the political debate.
Our practical approach means we’re ideal partners for government, working at the heart of policy-making for the benefit of infrastructure. On behalf of our members, we champion infrastructure at every level – from Westminster to the metro-mayors and everyone in between.
Our groups provide a forum for members to share their views and experiences and influence our thinking. The APPG on Building Communities promotes the social value that infrastructure delivers to our communities and how this contributes to the success of our economy.
We produce reports to share our members’ thought-leadership, consultation responses to inform government policy and member-only briefings on political and economic matters of note.
Our road network is probably our most important public asset with almost all journeys touching a road at some point. It is vital for the movement of goods and people and both a facilitator and driver of economic performance.
Projects to increase connectivity and capacity, including HS2 and Northern Powerhouse rail, will introduce a step-change in one of our oldest forms of public transport. As well as a proud heritage, the UK also has a dynamic rail future.
The issues which affect the planning and delivery of mega-projects like Thames Tideway, HS2 and the Heathrow expansion – from skills shortages to financing and funding issues via productivity.
The next generation of infrastructure will need to focus on sustainability at its core and be delivered within the framework of environmental net-gain. Infrastructure has to be sustainable in both its design and delivery.
A critical national resource, those who play a role in providing the UK with water bear a huge responsibility. Infrastructure plays a key role in ensuring a plentiful and safe supply of water across the country.
We need innovative solutions to our national housing crisis to find new ways to ensure everyone can live in a clean, safe, affordable and sustainable home and build the 300,000 homes a year that are required to meet demand.
