FOOD RETAILING IN THE UK IN THE MID 90'S - AN OPERATOR'S VIEW ON THE TRANSPORTATION ISSUES

The author discusses key events which have affected transport planning in relation to retail development since the publishing in 1990 of the UK government's White Paper on the Environment, 'This Common Inheritance'. This includes the Rio Earth Summit, The UK Strategy for Sustainable Development and controversy surrounding PPGs (Planning Policy Guidance) 6 and 13. Factors which currently need to be considered when making planning applications are discussed including a) travel distance assessments, b) accessibility measures, c) air pollution and d) parking. Sainsbury's response to these requirements is outlined. It involves proposals for a variety of store types. Other initiatives proposed by Sainsbury include a Stage II vapour recovery system and the sale of City Diesel. For the covering abstract see IRRD 876474.
