of deliveries will be substantially reduced or eliminated and the time scale to achieve this. Click here to download the Premises Mitigation Plan

Permits will only be issued for deliveries and collection to premises inside the cordon who have registered online at

What information is required in the mitigation plan?

  • An explanation of why 5+ axle HGVs are needed
