The National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) is the Governments expert, impartial advisor on infrastructure. It is currently undertaking work on its second National Infrastructure Assessment, which will provide an analysis of “the UK’s long term economic infrastructure needs, outlining a strategic vision over the next thirty years and setting out recommendations for how identified needs should be met.”
We are therefore delighted to be joined for this addition of the Planning Futures Supper Club, by James Heath, the NIC Chief Executive, who has agreed to give us an overview of the work of the commission and his thoughts on how the UK’s infrastructure needs will be met in the coming years.
James was appointed as Chief Executive of the NIC in 2020 following roles at DCMS and the BBC.
Following the usual Supper Club Format, this event will take place over dinner at The Wolseley and is open to all Planning Futures Members on a first come, first served basis.
