The announcement of the consultation is here.

I've been involved in quite a few discussions about this type of infrastructure funding recently, so it will be interesting to see the results of the consult. There is definitely an appetite for more imaginative use of financial vehicles to get the EU back in the fast lane.

Meanwhile, for those with their eyes on smaller scale solutions to funding infrastructure, there is a Cumbria Social Enterprise Partnership event on 16th March in Kendal for anyone wishing to know about community share issue.
