DELIVERY AND SERVICE MANAGEMENT PLANS
Delivery and service management plans are increasingly required as part of development planning requirements, especially where you have a major commercial or residential development that is likely to generate a large movement of goods and materials.
In addition to a Transport Statement or Assessment, which will assess the impacts of movements generated by delivery and servicing vehicles and identify appropriate measures to mitigate those impacts, many local highway authorities would require a Delivery and Serving Plan(DSP). This is used to set out the details of how delivery and servicing will be performed in a way that minimises impacts on the adjoining road network, including highway safety.
The Delivery Service Plan will help to achieve financial savings through improved efficiencies, identify safe and legal loading provision, improve vehicular access for delivery and collection, reduce environmental impact and improve safety.
SANDS delivery and service management plans services
A Delivery and Service Management plan is meant to assess transport movements’ impact on your delivery and service management. At SANDS, we have extensive experience of developing appropriate solutions for delivery and service management plans, including the design of both on-street and off-street provision supported by swept path analysis as appropriate. We ensure that its adequately integrated into the landscape strategy for the development without jeopardizing safety for all active modes.
The Delivery and Service Management Plan can be produced either as a stand-alone document or linked to a car park management plan or a site wide traffic management plan. The following are considered as a minimum subject to the scale of the development when developing the Delivery and Service Management Plans:
- Location(s) for loading and unloading;
- hours of loading and unloading;
- frequency and size of vehicles;
- routing, including swept paths where relevant;
- means and opportunities for consolidation of deliveries;
- Control measures e.g. Low/zero emission vehicles, direct vision vehicles, FORS accreditation etc,
- waste management and segregation, storage, transfer and servicing arrangements.
