Date published: 31 August 2016
Closing date: 14 October 2016, 5pm

The purpose of this consultation was to seek views on some proposed changes to the General Approval (Stations) 2013 and the General Approval (Depots) 2013, as well as some proposed changes to our model station and depot access agreements.

The stations and depots general approvals have been in force for almost three years. To ensure they remain fit for purpose, we sought views on some changes we propose to make and to invite ideas for any other changes consultees would like to suggest.

Our consultation letter set out:

  • the background of the general approvals;
  • findings from our monthly audits of the use of the general approvals;
  • the scope of the review itself; and
  • next steps.
