Spatial planning has a central role in the planning and delivery of infrastructure. It is concerned with all investment and includes the private, public and community sectors. This extended role in infrastructure planning and delivery now sits within the whole governance structure at the local level, which is increasingly being joined up and coordinated. Spatial planning also extends to the use of all public sector assets and the location of services and facilities. It is concerned with all public sector mainstream budgets, as well as funding from agencies such as the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), private investment and developers' contributions.
