This webinar forms part of our RTPI Online series and is brought to you by the North West Region.

This webinar will cover how freight and logistics influences land use planning and development and how current and future trends are likely to impact on the built environment. The rapidly changing nature of the supply chain has disrupted traditional ways of getting goods to the consumer and this in turn will impact on the nature of freight movements, with implications for planning. Technological advances and the green agenda are also altering how freight moves and operates and this webinar will provide insight into how freight is likely to be transported in the future and the challenges and opportunities this presents for developers and planner alike.
