We bring together all those involved in the planning and authorisation of nationally significant infrastructure projects (NSIPs) in the UK, focusing on projects in the areas of energy, transport, water, waste and waste water.

Our members are diverse and include the leading promoters and practitioners in relation to UK infrastructure planning, as well as those stakeholders who engage in the process.

We build relationships between the public, private and voluntary sectors, actively contribute to ongoing policy discussion and formulation and develop and champion best practice.
