Lee Waters MS, Deputy Minister for Climate Change
I am pleased to announce Dr David Clubb as Chair Designate of the National Infrastructure Commission for Wales. The Senedd’s Climate Change, Environment and Infrastructure Committee will hold a pre-appointment hearing with Dr Clubb on 30 September.
John Lloyd Jones OBE leaves NICW after three years as Chair with my thanks for his service and commitment.
We face huge challenges in addressing climate change and I intend to sharpen the commission’s focus in that area. Dr Clubb has excellent credentials including extensive experience of the renewable energy sector. I am confident the commission would make a significant contribution to long term infrastructure planning under Dr Clubb’s leadership.
Following the hearing, my intention is to begin an open recruitment process to appoint commissioners to work alongside Dr Clubb.
