Planning Guidance

An efficient and effective freight system begins with sound planning policies. It is desirable to provide and enforce common standards for freight transport infrastructure, development planning and governance policies. Freight planning guidance should set the framework against which an efficient multimodal freight network should be planned. Integrating into the wider planning guidance of the Urban Planning Council (UPC) and other authorities including the municipalities, the Plan will provide specific and meaningful guidance that accounts for the overall contribution of freight in a balanced manner.
