Hart District Council is encouraging residents to take part in a survey to ensure new electric vehicle infrastructure will meet future needs.
In relation to Prime Minister Boris Johnson announcing that the sale of new internal combustion engine cars will end within the decade and that funding will be released to increase local access to charge points for drivers, the new survey will build a picture of electric car use in Hart and identify prime locations to install charging points within the district.
Cllr Alan Oliver, Cabinet member for the environment, said: “Electric vehicles have a key role to play in improving air quality and driving down emissions and Hart is committed to promoting greener and healthier travel.
“The feedback from residents will help us make sure our electric vehicle strategy meets the community’s needs so I hope as many as possible complete our short survey.”
Hart District Council has already made a significant reduction in its own carbon emissions due to new Covid-19 working patterns, with more than 9,000 miles in staff commutes per week saved – resulting in a reduction in emissions of 2.8 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
