FTA warns of Cities Devolution Bill confusion

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has advised that freight deliveries to the UK’s main cities should be governed by the same regulations to avoid confusion.

The warning follows the government’s decision to progress the Cities Devolution Bill, which will allow cities with an elected mayor to take control of local transport, housing and skills.

The FTA explained that freight operators should not have to face differing rules and regulations in order to deliver goods in different cities.

Christopher Snelling, head of urban logistics and regional policy at the FTA, said: “The FTA has concerns over the future role of elected Mayors in these authorities.  Personality politics can lead to actions led by political image concerns rather than good policy making processes.”
