If minded to approve the scheme, there would be a number of planning conditions imposed to mitigate any highways and environmental impacts.  Construction logistics plans and delivery and servicing plans would be required to help manage movements to and from the site and ensure that they are environmentally sustainable.  My Transport for London staff, and borough traffic engineers, would be advising on the wording of these to make sure that construction traffic is effectively managed, including zero emissions vehicles.
