The announcement from the Department of Transport that there will be £35 million of Grants for the Go Ultra Low City Scheme fund is welcomed by Southampton & District Green Party. Ultra Low Emission Vehicles are plug in electric vehicles which may be hybrid vehicles. The Office for Low Emissions Vehicles now also recognises the potential for two wheeled plug in vehicles. The emissions criteria for ULEV vehicles, is 75g CO2/km.
Joe Cox standing in Bargate Ward in this year’s May Elections wants to see good information posted on the Southampton City Council Website dipicting where drivers of plug in cars can find charging points. He stated, “the City Centre has few places for plug in vehicles to recharge. By finding more sites and special parking bays, we have a chance to spend some extra money on reducing pollution within the city”.
