The freight and haulage industry is being invited to contribute to the London Lorry Control Scheme review at a dedicated Operators’ Workshop.
London Councils is organising the workshop to give operators the opportunity to share their experiences of complying with the London Lorry Control Scheme (LLCS) and discuss the review in more detail.
The Operators’ Workshop will take place on Thursday 9 March 2017 in central London.
Places are limited to two representatives per company and due to venue capacity, it may not be possible to confirm a place for everyone who has registered. Only those with a confirmed place will be admitted on the day.
Cllr Julian Bell, Chair of London Councils’ Transport and Environment Committee, said:
‘The London Lorry Control Scheme has been providing important environmental protection for Londoners for more than 30 years.
‘The review is being carried out to assess the effectiveness of the scheme and consider whether any changes or improvements are needed. The review is progressing well and we are really pleased with the level of engagement we’ve had with all parties involved, which has helped the steering group to hone in on areas of the scheme that need attention.
‘The Operators’ Workshop presents a great opportunity for freight and haulage industry representatives to share their views and help us shape the future of the scheme. I would encourage all those with an interest to attend.’
Feedback from the Operators’ Workshop will be combined with insights from the LLCS review working group to inform recommendations for improvements to the scheme. London boroughs, Transport for London and residents’ associations are also being asked for their views.
Recommendations will be discussed at London Councils’ Transport and Environment Committee later this year before a public consultation is held on any proposed changes to the scheme.
