Brevia Transport, a dedicated division of Brevia Consulting, has a strong track record of helping organisations in the transport sector.
Our cross-party team of consultants are experienced in road, rail, aviation, ports and shipping. The division offers a full range of services including parliamentary monitoring, strategic advice, media relations, select committee training, and comprehensive stakeholder engagement programmes that encompass Westminster, Whitehall, Brussels, and the devolved administrations. Being part of a global network, our partners allow us to have a truly international perspective on transport policy developments.
In the coming years, the transport sector faces considerable change. Automated and electric vehicles will become a bigger part of our transport system, while clean air policies and other environmental commitments will affect all types of transport. Meanwhile, the Industrial Strategy is set to incentivise new forms of transport and Brexit has the potential to have a profound impact on the sector.
Yesterday, the final Police and Crime Commissioner ballot results from the 6 May 2021 elections were announced. This brought to a conclusion the process started last week to elect 145 English local councils, 13 English mayors and 39 police and crime commissioners in England and Wales. As well as the Welsh Parliament (60 seats), London Assembly (25 seats) and, crucially, the Scottish Parliament (129 seats) and the Hartlepool Westminster by-election. These results will have significant implications for all the major political parties in the UK. This will undoubtedly impact the lobbying strategies of companies seeking to influence the direction of policy in our country.
As COP26 approaches, Brevia will be tracking the latest milestones in the UK’s preparations for the upcoming climate conference. This week’s developments cover the CCC’s upcoming Climate Risk Assessment, the launch of the New Net Zero Business Group Alliance, and questions surrounding green taxes.
The momentum behind COP26 has created an apparently benign climate for low carbon investment in the UK, however that could all change at next week’s Scottish Parliament election. The 2021 Scottish Parliament elections will be the latest in a series of public ballots, since 2014’s Scottish Referendum, where the future of the United Kingdom is at stake. Due to Brexit and COVID19 it has perhaps been understated how important the Scottish election will be. However, depending upon its result, we could see British politics dominated by the issue of Scottish independence in the same way it was dominated by Brexit in recent years. Businesses whose investments depend on policy decisions yet to come must be mindful of this. As the question of Scottish Independence may leave politicians and officials will little time to consider anything else.
