A Blueprint for Growth

A Blueprint for Growth

The Blueprint for Growth outlines several key measures to boost the UK’s growth and productivity. It has been produced by 12 Tier One UK infrastructure and construction contractors and consultants which have a collective annual UK turnover of more than £25bn and directly employ more than 100,000 people in the UK.

The 12 recommendations include:

  1. Depoliticise infrastructure
  2. Appoint a Cabinet Minister responsible for infrastructure
  3. Increase private investment in public infrastructure
  4. Timely, holistic decision-making on key areas
  5. Improve budget setting for infrastructure schemes
  6. Efficient risk allocation
  7. Investment continuity
  8. Simplify the judicial review process
  9. Mandate consideration of the national interest
  10. Self-certification system to accelerate delivery of infrastructure projects
  11. Transform the Apprenticeship Levy
  12. A flexible immigration system
