Development proposals would be supported that enable a move towards more sustainable freight and goods delivery, and which have the potential to improve system efficiency and effectiveness and allow uptake of lower carbon transport choices. Facilities that support uptake of zero-emission freight vehicles such as electric vehicle charging areas should also be supported.
However, such facilities will not be suitable at all locations. The following matters should therefore all be reviewed carefully before considering support:
The alignment of any proposals with local, sub-national, and national policy and guidance;
The proximity of proposed facilities to relevant strategic transport corridors;
The ability for facilities to be easily accessed by sustainable transport modes; and,
Any environmental, amenity, or heritage impacts on surrounding areas.
