The affordability of key resources such as water and energy is important to community well-being and livelihood. Yet the planning of infrastructure tends to treat affordability as an afterthought to be dealt with through subsidies or market adjustments. Fuel poverty is a key example but there is also a growing academic literature on water poverty. This chapter considers energy, water, transport and recycling infrastructure to discuss how provision can be made for lower-income groups as a fundamental element of infrastructure planning and counter-posing this to a market-model of infrastructure provision.

Keywords:   Infrastructure, Fuel poverty, Water poverty, Affordability
