Please provide a web link to the terms.*Do any current council procurement terms specify the Direct Vision Standard (DVS) that lorries used on council contracts or developments must adhere to? Please provide a web link to the terms. (Note: TfL London-wide regulations require all lorries to be DVS one star rated or be fitted with mitigation measures, however for its own contracts TfL requires a one-star rating without the option of a zero-star rating but with mitigation measures fitted -councils can also adopt such a requirement) *Do any current council planning conditions require developers or their contractors to be FORS graded, CLOCS members or use one-star DVS lorries?
