In December 2001 the Government published its proposed changes to the planning system in Great Britain. This was an important opportunity for the Institute of Logistics and Transport to make its voice heard on the subject. A lengthy consultation procedure was undertaken to canvass the views of the membership and formulate an institute response. The response was steered by members of the Transport Planning Special Interest Group with input from members of he Policies Committee, the ILT Strategic Rail Working party and other Special Interest Groups Members who had registered an interest through the Skills Pool were also contacted and encouraged to send in their thoughts and opinions. The Institute of Logistics and Transport welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Planning Green Paper. It supports the fundamental principles that engage the planning function.
