Freight Study impact and costing note

Assessing the impact of recommendations made in the Freight Study with significant spending implications.

Tagged: PlaceTransport

This note, which supports the final report of the Freight Study, covers the Commission’s recommendations with significant spending implications and assesses:

  • the impact of the recommendations on the Commission’s objectives to support sustainable economic growth across all regions of the UK, improve competitiveness and improve quality of life
  • the expected costs of the recommendation, and their impact on the Commission’s fiscal and economic remits
  • uncertainty, distributional effects and risks around these estimates and the balance of evidence behind recommendations, as far as it has been possible to make these assessments.

The impact and costing note records the Commission’s assessment of these factors in a standard format.
