National Infrastructure Commission launch “good practice” toolkit

The National Infrastructure Commission has today (Oct 07) launched a toolkit that sets out best practice for cities to follow when developing local infrastructure strategies.

The toolkit analyses strategies across the country and tries to set out what successful strategies have in common with each other.

The guidance seeks to maximise the impact of further devolution of powers and funding to city regions recommended by the Commission, by sharing experience and knowledge between local authorities on how locally developed strategies can be both ambitious and effective.

The guidance is due to be launched at a virtual event co-hosted by Centre for Cities, and addressed by Sir John Armitt, Chair of the Commission, and Andy Burnham, Mayor of Manchester.

Sir John will say:

“We’re pleased to have been able to convene a group of pioneering cities who have been willing to work with the Commission, sharing their successes and their challenges for the benefit of others.

Our work with colleagues in Basildon, Derby, Exeter, Liverpool City Region and West Yorkshire has helped us draw together valuable lessons on how local strategies can make a positive difference for citizens.”
