The National Infrastructure Commission for Wales was established in 2018: “as an independent, non-statutory, advisory body to Welsh Ministers, whose key purpose will be to analyse, advise and make recommendations on Wales’ longer term strategic economic and environment infrastructure needs”.
Now its Chair and 11 Commissioners have been appointed, attention is turning to some fundamental questions: what are Wales’ infrastructure needs, what should be our priorities and how should they be decided?
In Autumn 2018, IWA hosted a series of blogs curated by Ed Evans, CECA (the Civil Engineering Contractors Association), exploring these issues.
Continuing the discussion in the latest IWA podcast with Auriol Miller, Director of the IWA, are:
- Ed Evans, Director of the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) Wales Cymru
- David Clubb, Director of RenewableUK Cymru
- Rhodri Hugh Thomas, Principal Sustainability Consultant at Cynnal Cymru-Sustain Wales
- Josh Miles, Policy Manager for FSB Wales
