Filling station network meeting

CAMBRIDGESHIRE County Council is to host a meeting at 10am on June 29 from which it is hoped to form a regional network of public autogas filling stations. The move is designed to boost the take-up of gas-powered cars and light commercial vehicles in fleets.

Organiser David Sheldon, who is a member of Cambridge city's Greener Fleet Forum and is the council's principal client manager with responsibility for 680 leased cars and 100 vans, has approached dealership groups and supermarket chains who already have fuel forecourts and expects representatives to attend the meeting.

Fleet operators and any businesses with an interest in the supply of gaseous road fuels or gas-powered vehicles will be welcomed, too. 'Without a proper infrastructure of gas filling stations, the fleet take-up of gas-powered vehicle options will be limited,' said Sheldon. 'In our case, a depot-based system is impractical as we have cars spread throughout the county.'

Anyone who wants to attend the Shire Hall meeting is asked to telephone Sheldon on 01223 717087.
