Infrastructure UK, new organism to manage public investment in the UK
9 December, 2009 By Ed Owen
Alistair Darling has pledged to invest in infrastructure decades into the future, by setting up Infrastructure UK to focus the government’s planning to prioritise and fund infrastructure over the coming 50 years.
Infrastructure UK "will help facilitate private sector investment in infrastructure and help ensure that publicly funded infrastructure is effectively prioritised and delivered.”
Infrastructure UK will be chaired by ex Rio Tinto chairman Paul Skinner and James Stewart has been appointed as Chief Executive, who will move on secondment from Partnerships UK where he was chief executive..
One of the body’s tasks will be to identify new revenue streams for major infrastructure, and manage the government’s money earmarked for the 2020 European Fund for Energy, Climate Change and Infrastructure.
It will also guide the Treasury in its infrastructure investment.
Finally, the body will actively support the development and construction of major infrastructure, reporting to the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and the Treasury on pushing the transition to a low-carbon economy.
Infrastructure UK will amalgamate several independent bodies - The Infrastructure Finance Unit, the Treasury’s PPP policy team, and parts of Partnerships UK.Fonte: nce
