Ideating and planning for our cities and regions and their infrastructure needs is complex, as is understanding how our cities and regions will grow and which infrastructure projects will enhance community wellbeing and prosperity now, and into the future.

The inherent challenge lies in the need to balance ‘predict and provide’ approach that addresses immediate infrastructure demands versus strategic infrastructure, that has the potential to shape the future and alter demand patterns.

KPMG’s Planning & Infrastructure Economics team can help plan for our cities and regions for now and the future by helping develop and prioritise projects that address the immediate and long term requirements and generate sustainable community benefits.
