This consultation response sets out a case for a greater focus on systems thinking, analyses what is needed to better understand public attitudes to long-term infrastructure provision and explains the need for regional infrastructure strategies.
It makes three recommendations
- The infrastructure sector must place an emphasis on systems thinking, whilst adopting common approaches and frameworks that better share lessons learnt.
- Working with polling organisations and other experts, the Commission should explore what levels of public knowledge exist around long-term resilience and what information would be necessary to garner public support for investment to meet long-term need.
- Regional infrastructure strategies should be developed across England that consider resilience as a fundamental part of infrastructure planning and delivery.
