The ULI Infrastructure Council’s mission is to enhance the understanding of the relationship and interdependency between urban infrastructure and development, in order to improve its planning, design, investment and delivery in the UK, to create more sustainable towns and cities.
Our current programme focuses on two main themes:
- Major infrastructure investment projects and their relationship with regeneration and development
- City scale infrastructure investment and innovation to stimulate economic growth and development.
The UK Infrastructure Council aims to bring together leading investors and practitioners in real estate, urban development, transport, utilities and social infrastructure, and utilise ULI’s extensive public and private networks to exercise leadership and share best practice for the responsible investment, planning, design, and development of urban infrastructure and development in the UK.
Our infrastructure focus varies from year to year, but includes a wide range of sectors, all of which underpin successful urban development, including but not limited to: Transport, Utilities, Education, Health, Community Facilities, Public Realm, and Housing. Our priority is on city scale infrastructure, and its relationship with development, although we also consider national infrastructure projects where there is a significant impact on real estate and urban development in UK towns and cities.
Who we are
We are financiers, infrastructure owners, developers, investors, leading engineers, academics and civil servants, as well as other professionals all active in the UK infrastructure and urban development sectors. We welcome members and participants from the public and private, large and small organisations who care about advancing best practice across the all fields of the infrastructure and urban development fields.
Our approach seeks to enhance understanding of the planning, funding and delivery of infrastructure and development in cities. We do this by identifying and sharing best practice, exploring lessons learned on previous projects, and examining future planned projects to identify opportunities for better integration.
This is achieved through organising round table discussions and seminars; site visits and tours; conferences; and providing experts to participate in ULI advisory panels.
We are exploring the opportunities to produce a series of materials which can promote best practice to a wider audience. Parties interested in supporting such a project are encouraged to contact ULI.
