Reasons to choose Wilson Browne

The Department for Transport (DfT) and Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) have launched a consultation:

The Departments are calling for evidence to shape how planning policies can be improved to ensure there is sufficient land allocated for this use and how the planning system can be changed to enable development which:

  • supports supply chains
  • assists in the decarbonisation of freight
  • promotes heavy goods vehicle (HGVs) driver parking facilities and welfare
  • strengthens the Union

In June the government published its plan for freight but part of that plan included a call for evidence from the sector. The government is keen to hear from (amongst others):

  • Freight and logistics sector businesses
  • developers and consultancies acting on behalf of freight and logistics businesses
  • representative or trade bodies for the planning, transport, freight and logistics and other relevant sectors
  • interested and expert individuals

Details of how to respond are here  Introduction: Freight and logistics and the planning system: Call for evidence (

The closing date for responses is 6th October 2023.
