Policy wins – February 2022


Wins recently achieved by Logistics UK's policy team.

OXFORDSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL: BURFORD WEIGHT LIMIT REMOVED  

Logistics UK successfully influenced Oxfordshire County Council to remove a temporary ban on vehicles weighing more than 7.5 tonnes driving through parts of Burford. Logistics UK submitted evidence to the council which responded by revoking the Experimental Traffic Regulation Order. Logistics UK will continue to work with the council as it develops its countywide freight strategy. 

SCOTLAND – FREIGHT AND LOGISTICS INCLUDED IN PUBLICATION OF REGIONAL TRANSPORT PLANS 

The Transport Partnerships for Aberdeen City and Shire (Nestrans) and the Regional Transport Partnership for South East Scotland (SEStran) published dedicated chapters to freight and logistics in their regional transport plans in December 2021. This was a result of regular meetings over 18 months in which Logistics UK highlighted the importance of the logistics sector to the economic success of these regions and submitted responses to various consultations during the writing process of these reports. 

WALES – DRIVER FACILITIES TO BE INCLUDED IN PLANNING POLICY 

Logistics UK submitted evidence to the Economy Committee of the Welsh Senedd during its inquiry on the driver shortage in Wales. This prompted the Senedd to call on the Welsh Government to update its planning policy to require warehouse facilities and other logistics sector spaces to include high-quality driver facilities. 

WALES – PROPOSALS TO IMPROVE DRIVER REST FACILITIES 

Following strong in person and in writing engagement with the Economy Committee of the Welsh Senedd, Welsh MPs are pursuing an audit of roadside facilities and setting out proposals to work with partners to improve commercial driver rest facilities.
