APPG ON BUILDING COMMUNITIES
Building Communities focuses on the human dimension to infrastructure investment and provides an important addition to the public debate.
The cross-party group brings together politicians and the industry to influence and improve practices around building community and placemaking and helps to make the case for the positive economic and social impact of good infrastructure design.
At a meeting on Monday 18 June 2018, Bob Blackman MP was voted chair, Liz Twist MP and Stephen Hammond MP vice-chairs, and Mark Prisk MP as secretary.
ACE provides the secretariat to the APPG which is supported by the following ACE members: AECOM, Arcadis, Mott MacDonald, Peter Brett Associates, Ramboll, Waterman, WSP and WYG. It is also supported by non-member Heathrow.
The cross-party group has members from across the political spectrum and from both houses:
