Overview

High quality, high performing infrastructure is vital for economic growth and improved quality of life. To be able to deliver effective outcomes ICE recommends that devolved decision making is backed by strong regional leadership, accountability, prudent financing, and that regional strategies reflect explicit local needs. It also advocates a systems approach to ensure strong linkages between infrastructure sectors and a joined-up approach to skills needed to deliver future projects.

Hear our panelists debate how, in the light of Brexit, we ensure that devolution brings economic and social benefits for regions and also strengthens the infrastructure and economic stability of UK plc.
