Infrastructure is fundamental to the micro, meso and macro level functionality of a vibrant and flourishing society. Yet, against the backdrop of historical under-investment, and the manifestation of emerging developments, there are pertinent signposts indicating the necessity for ‘more and better’ social infrastructure in the UK. Social infrastructure comprises municipal, education, emergency and response services, housing, justice, and leisure and recreational assets. Nonetheless, acute capital retrenchment on the part of the public-sector has culminated in a profound gap between infrastructure demands and supply. To alleviate this gap, there is increased proclivity for private financing of infrastructure.
