March 18, 2002 was the deadline for the response to be submitted to the British government's main consultation on transport planning reforms. The planning green paper titled 'Planning: Delivering a Fundamental Change,' was published in December along with a number of derived consultations which covered provisions compulsory purchase and compensation, new parliamentary procedures for processing major infrastructure projects, and planning obligations. It is reported in this article that the response of the Institute of Logistics and Transport was led by special interest groups along with a number of specially co-opted planning experts. A consultation exercise was undertaken with views taken on board from the institute's working parties, local branches and individual members.
