Design Principles for National Infrastructure, developed by the Commission’s Design Group in consultation with all infrastructure sectors, sets out four principles to guide the planning and delivery of major infrastructure projects: climate, people, places and value.

These should guide the projects which will upgrade and renew the UK’s infrastructure system. They should be applied to all economic infrastructure: digital communications, energy, transport, flood management, water and waste.

A print-ready version of the pamphlet is available here.

As part of its work developing the Design Principles, the Design Group commissioned supporting research from Frame Projects consisting of a primary research report and a literature review.
