Council successful in funding for zero emission vehicles

Ashfield District Council has been successful in its application to the Infrastructure Solutions for Zero Emission Vehicles competition.

Working in partnership with Cleanergy EV Ltd, DG:Cities, Royal Borough of Greenwich and Nottingham City Council,  Ashfield District Council will receive £10,391 in funding as part of a project to support the transition to zero emission vehicles for Environment and Waste.

The funding will be used to hire a fully electric vehicle, to be used by our Housing team and will see an electric charging point installed at the Council’s Depot.

The Council will also receive support to fully review our current vehicle fleet and ways to improve performance and reduce CO2 emissions.

Cllr Kier Barsby, Cabinet Member for Environmental Improvements, Communications and Cross Portfolio Support said:

“It is fantastic news that we have been successful in receiving this funding. The project includes industry leaders in zero emission vehicles, and it is a great opportunity for us to work with them and improve the environmental impact of our vehicles.
“The Council is committed to improving our environmental footprint, and this is just on of the ways we are making changes. Our maintenance team already use an electric vehicle and we have 20 electric vehicle charging points across the District for residents to use. We will continue to embrace any opportunities to become a greener Council.”
