Infrastructure and services have financial, social and environmental implications. There is plenty of evidence showing that compact, complete community development is more financially and environmentally sustainable over the long term. The Ministry of Municipal Affairs created the CLIC tool to help local governments make informed decisions related to the long-term sustainability of infrastructure development. The tool enables local governments to compare the infrastructure costs of different development scenarios over a 100-year period informing sustainable development and asset management decisions. The tool is effective in facilitating integrated decision making by bringing together engineering, finance and planning perspectives.
