Construction Logistic Plan
Construction Logistic Plans (CLP) are important management tools for planners, developers and contractors in assessing and reducing the negative transport effects of a construction project on local communities, residents, businesses and environment. In order to begin any construction activities a planning authority may require a Construction Logistic Plan (CLP) to managed the construction phase of the development to ensure any adverse effects to the road networks, safety, environment and that the community considerations has been factored into the approach to the delivery of the construction phase. A well-planned CLP will provide the following benefits:
- Efficient working practices in reducing delivery and saving costs.
- Improve safety of road users
- Lower vehicle emission and noise levels
- Reduce vehicle trips, particularly during peak periods
CLP’s are delivered in two stages with an outline CLP for the planning stage and a detailed CLP for the pre-construction stage following receipt of planning approval. Various planning authorities have own specific CLP guidance or proforma to be completed however the overarching guidance was developed by Transport for London (TfL) and adopted by Construction Logistic and Community Safety (CLOCS) for UK-wide implementation. SANDS have accredited experts in the delivery of Construction Logistic Plans and our practitioners ID can be found on the construction logistics website.
