Brevia Infrastructure provides straightforward political and communications support to facilitate major infrastructure and development projects. Our experience includes airports, housing developments, rail freight interchanges, road and rail schemes, and civil nuclear infrastructure. Brevia has also provided support to a number of chartered bodies covering engineering, building and project management. We have specialist expertise in supporting Development Consent Orders (DCOs).
Brevia works at the heart of multi-disciplinary teams to help navigate the planning process and the political environment faced by major infrastructure developments. Our support reduces reputational and political risk at all phases in the project cycle from planning through to build and operation.
Brevia’s deep understanding of the sector has enabled us to support clients on a wide range of projects. Our consultants have particular strength in working with clients to successfully secure Development Consent Orders (DCOs) for Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIP). The consultancy has also supported a range of chartered bodies in the sector including the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Association for Project Management (APM), and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
The infrastructure industry is of key strategic importance to the UK economy. Over £600 billion of public and private investment is projected over the next 10 years and nearly 700 projects, programmes and other investments are in the Government’s National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline.
Last week, we learned the results of Labour’s 2020 National Executive Committee (NEC) elections. The contest has important implications for the Party, and indeed Keir Starmer, as the NEC oversees overall direction of the Party and its policy making processes.
Before the coronavirus crisis, the UK Government was in the process of looking into online harms and formulating legislation to combat them, with the proposed measures designed to be the ‘first of their kind’. The emergence of coronavirus has highlighted the full breadth of online harms and their potential for damage, and accelerated the Government’s appetite to respond.
Some of the most dramatic effects of the Covid-19 outbreak and the response measures it demands have been on modes of transport. Airlines have been grounded, discretionary domestic travel is discouraged and the use of public transport is advised against. Instead, the Government has promoted cycling and walking as a form of safe, socially distanced travel. With the consequences of the virus expected to persist for a ‘long period of time’ transport policy is shifting to keep people moving.
