This consultation seeks views on how to remove barriers preventing local government pension scheme funds from investing in infrastructure projects.  The consultation document suggests two options for change: to increase the limit on investment in partnerships from 15% of a local authority pension fund to 30%, and to create a new investment class for investment in infrastructure with an appropriate investment limit of 15% of an overall fund.

The consultation closes on 18 December 2012. A copy of the consultation document is available at: http://www.communities.gov.uk/publications/localgovernment/lgpsinvestmentpartnerships
