Transport issues

Transport

Car parks

If you have car parking at your site take care to:

  • Prevent causing nuisance to neighbours. Consider noise, fumes and dust and lighting
  • Check where surface water runoff goes. It may be polluted with oil and other fluids from vehicles. Consider using SuDS and/or an oil separator.

Low emission vehicles and driver training

If you operate vehicles you can take steps to reduce their impact on the environment.

  • Choose vehicles with low emissions. Consider alternatively powered vehicles.
  • Choose transport methods with the lowest impacts – can you use rail transport?
  • Plan deliveries and routes to minimise time and fuel use.
  • Drive efficiently
