HGV Operating Centre Issues.
We can help with dealing with problems relating to the environmental suitability of your operating centre
On the grant of an HGV operators licence or at the five yearly review of an operators licence the Traffic Commissioner must take into account any objections from the neighbours to your operating centre or from the local authority as to the suitability of the operating centre for the operation of goods vehicles.
If somebody objects to your Operating Centre then it is likely that the Traffic Commissioner will call a Public Inquiry to hear the representations and to impose conditions on the O licence to deal with any problems that have occurred because goods vehicles are or have been operating from the site.
Oliver Legal have represented a number of operators where the Traffic Commissioner is considering imposing conditions at the request of neighbours or the local council. Oliver Legal undertake a site survey and can advise on the likely outcomes of an environmental Public Inquiry to ensure that any conditions that are imposed have a minimal impact upon the operation of goods vehicles. A carefully worded written submission to the Traffic Commissioner may also help to resolve any environmental issues and avoid an Inquiry.
