Delivery and servicing plan guidance

The supply of goods and services in dense urban centres is a vital component of what makes cities and places function. Incorporating good planning for freight and servicing activity into a facility will make places more desirable for people.

A Delivery and Servicing Plan identifies the delivery and servicing tasks relating to a development and the management measures that will be used as part of site operations. Transport for NSW has developed this guidance to encourage progressive and innovative approaches for better management of freight and servicing activity.
