Green social democracy: building a public mandate for infrastructure



22 September, 2014


Infrastructure renewal is at the heart of the UK’s economic development and Sir John Armitt has set out a new framework for infrastructure planning which has been accepted by the Labour Party. But can this be successful when projects are so often thwarted by public opposition?

Produced in consultation with our Green Social Democracy advisory group, under our Green Roots programme, this pamphlet highlights that Armitt’s proposals risk failure unless there is a much stronger commitment to public dialogue.

With examples of successful models, it sets out a clear way to build better public engagement on new infrastructure into the Armitt framework.
