The remit of the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) is set out in the NIC’s framework document, published in January 2017. The NIC has a mandate to examine all sectors of economic infrastructure; it does not have a role in overseeing the number of homes built on public land. While the NIC will not make recommendations on social infrastructure, it will consider the potential impact of infrastructure decisions on housing supply.
