In 2015 we met on Thursday 2 and Friday 3 July, a timing which allowed us to assess the outlook for UK infrastructure policy following the General Election and the changes in both personnel and policy which may result from it. Among the themes addressed were airport policy, energy market reforms, financial devolution and the role of cities and regions as well as the impact of technology on infrastructure and development in procuring network infrastructure.
