Daily Telegraph: "Infrastructure lies at heart of the UK’s ambition to expand beyond Europe"

"Infrastructure ignites passionate debates. Politicians in particular often use it as part of utopian rhetoric about building a brighter future. The reality of flagship infrastructure projects, however, is often very different, as long-mooted projects descend into a farrago of criticism and delays.

  This has been exacerbated by the Brexit vote, which has led some to question whether the UK remains 'open for business' with a long-term industrial strategy which will attract foreign direct investment, and drive economic growth.

"... Planning is not an EU competence, but EU legislation on sustainability and environmental issues impacts the UK planning process.  In the event of a hard Brexit, the Government could forgo UK implementing legislation in these areas, but any changes would need to take into account that public participation in environmental decision-making and access to environmental information are broader obligations which the UK has signed up to under international conventions such as the Aarhus Convention*."

* "The Aarhus Convention grants the public rights regarding access to information, public participation and access to justice, in governmental decision-making processes on matters concerning the local, national and transboundary environment. It focuses on interactions between the public and public authorities."
