The West End has high levels of demand for freight, servicing, delivery and collection services that must be managed to enable businesses to continue to flourish and grow and residents to access the goods and services they need. The projected growth of the West End means that the volume of these services is likely to increase.
The high concentration of mixed commercial activity interspersed with residential development is characteristic of the West End’s dense, historic urban fabric. This creates challenges for the movement, re-moding and re-timing of freight, servicing and deliveries.
This seminar will set out Mayoral and West End policy agendas, showcase public and industry experience and practical advice around the planning for, and movement of, freight, servicing and deliveries; consolidating supply chains; the role of micro-consolidation hubs/centres; and how the public and private sector can work together to ensure a well-managed West End that can sustain future growth and development.
