National Infrastructure Assessment: Methodology Consultation | Evidence Submission
Evidence by the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity
Submitted on 25 July 2016
The methodology for carrying out the National Infrastructure Assessment is a crucial concern for anyone concerned with the achievement of sustainable development in the UK, we find. The proposals, however, set out in the consultation document do not fully take that on board. Infrastructure development in this country has been subject (as the document states) to a “fragile and incomplete political consensus.”
The achievement of such a consensus is largely dependent on the taking into account of environmental factors, which are often the basis for successful and/or widely supported objections to infrastructure development proposals.
