Take the South West Vision Survey

Share your views on infrastructure decarbonisation in the region

SWIP is working with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) South West to establish the key infrastructure challenges facing the region, as we adapt to climate change and reduce carbon emissions between now and 2050.

As part of this ongoing project, SWIP is creating a South West Vision report, based on research and discussions with leading infrastructure professionals across the region.

We’d like to incorporate the views of SWIP contributors and other infrastructure stakeholders into this report via an online questionnaire.

Please complete the South West Vision Survey to share your insights on infrastructure decarbonisation in South West England. 

It will take 5-10 minutes to answer eight questions.

Please feel free to share the survey with your colleagues and contacts.

The survey will remain open until close of play on Monday 31 October 2022.

About the South West Vision project

The main purpose of the project is to establish the key challenges of infrastructure decarbonisation in the region and identify common themes and opportunities for improved leadership, collaboration and understanding across the different services and sectors.

This follows on from SWIP’s Integrating Net Zero Route Map that identified the three pillars of leadership, collaboration and education/literacy needed to deliver net zero. As 85% of the existing infrastructure we use today will still be in use in 2050, and with the acceleration in climate change impacts, how infrastructure adapts to the future climate will be as important as net zero in delivering serviceable infrastructure to 2050.

There will be two key outputs from the South West Vision project:

South West Vision report

A written South West Vision report is being produced by civil engineering consultancy, WSP, on behalf of SWIP and ICE South West. The document will be launched at an event in January 2022. If you’d like to register for a copy of the report or attend the launch event, please email

Beyond Brunel podcast series

To complement the report, a new podcast series will be released, featuring conversations with the main contributors to the South West Vision.

The series, called Beyond Brunel, is aimed at a wider public audience. It will offer a more digestible format for people interested in how the South West is responding to the climate change and decarbonisation challenge.

Please follow SWIP on LinkedIn or Twitter for news on the release of the podcast episodes.
