To allow the Neighbourhood Planning Bill to focus on essential planning measures, legislation for the National Infrastructure Commission has not be included at this time.

The Commission is an important part of the government’s overall approach on infrastructure and has already made a significant impact through its first three reports.

We remain fully committed to the Commission which has a crucial role to play in setting out the country’s infrastructure priorities. We are considering how it can best support the government’s new industrial strategy.
