The Heavy Transport Association continues dialogue with the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) as part of a wider working group in collaboration with industry associations.
We need your direct support for the next stage of meetings due later this month. Specifically, we are seeking evidence where Policing changes in Abload enforcement practices of late, have caused you as an operator, or your end client significant disruption, costs and reduced expectations. We are particularly interested in areas where you believe the Police enforcement/implementation to be in tension with both C&U and or STGO regs.
These examples will be collated and submitted in an evidence pack to deliver prior to the next meeting. Please send to email@example.com as soon as possible – contributions are open to non-members can be kept anonymous if necessary.
We also continue to discuss at parliamentary levels and urge you to write to your MP (a suggested template is attached). The more MPs we engage and gain support from, will help drive this un-consulted change in direction by Police forces (please feedback all MP responses to firstname.lastname@example.org).
