CITY A.M Coverage: Infrastructure Perspectives 2023

May, 2023

Major UK infrastructure projects are taking far longer than they used to despite changes to planning laws, says City A.M in their coverage of the Infrastructure Perspectives 2023 report ‘From Pandemic To Permacrisis’.

In the City A.M coverage of the report Dom O’Donnell, managing director at Infrastructure Matters said: “The escalation of delays in the UK planning system combined with the re-phasing and delay of major flagship projects has pushed the infrastructure sector and all UK major projects into a perfect storm.”

“The current regulatory and political environment is not only pausing the next generation of major projects and costing our country, but seriously damaging the UK’s ability to deliver world-leading projects by driving down confidence, reasons to invest, and reasons for talented next generation of major project leaders to work in UK infrastructure.”
