Construction Logistics Plans

CLOCS aims to create widespread adoption of work related road risk management in the planning process through raising awareness and adoption of Construction Logistics Plans (CLP).

The CLP focuses specifically on construction supply chains and how their impact on the road network can be reduced. A CLP differs from a Construction Management Plan (CMP) or Construction and Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) in that CLPs are developed earlier in the planning process and focus specifically on logistics. The information and planned measures identified in the CLP can also be included in the CMP or CEMP.

Construction Logistics Plans underpin the CLOCS Standard

It is important to understand roles and responsibilities for writing, implementing and monitoring adherence.

Local Planning Authorities (LPA) are responsible for reviewing and approving the Outline and the Detailed CLP. LPAs are also responsible for ensuring construction is carried out according to the terms of the CLP. They will respond to complaints raised by the community and follow them up with the developer.

Clients/Developers hold overall responsibility for the management of the development. They are responsible for agreeing the terms of the CLP and ensuring that their contractors conform with the agreed measures.

Planning specialists typically write the Outline CLP for planning approval. They are responsible for working with the client/developer and local authority planners to help define which planned measures can be agreed at the planning stage.

Principal contractors typically write the Detailed CLPs which reflect the actual plans for the construction of the site. Principal Contractors are responsible for the day-to-day management of the construction site. They are responsible for ensuring that the CLP and the agreed Planned Measures are implemented on the site.
