While the long-term trend is a transition to electrification and zero tailpipe freight transport, internal combustion engine HGVs will be on the roads for several decades and it is vitally important that they switch away from fossil diesel.  This will be assisted by greater rollout of biomethane fuelling stations.  The planning process for biomethane fuelling, needs to be streamlined as it currently takes far too long.  Proposals set out in the attached response should also benefit liquid renewable fuels such as HVO and biodiesel.  The most impactful of our suggestions would be a presumption in favour of planning applications for new renewable fuelling infrastructure and a requirement to set aside land for fuelling infrastructure for any new logistics centres, warehouses or driver welfare facilities.
