A National Policy Statement (NPS) for the framework and development of ports around England and Wales has been launched by the UK Government.

The NPS, which is subject to public consultation, sets out the need for additional port capacity going forward to 2030 and beyond, based on freight demand forecasts and the additional economic benefit.

British Shipping Minister Paul Clark said any new development needs to take into account local and environmental issues.

“This new document will make it easier for those wishing to invest in ports development to submit planning applications, as well as providing an important framework for the Infrastructure Planning Commission to use when considering them,” Clark said.
