The council has agreed a new policy to only buy pool vehicles which are capable of running on LPG as part of its commitment to maintain and improve air quality. Taunton Deane Borough Council has agreed to supply Somerset County Council with fuel from the refuelling facility at its Taunton depot until LPG becomes more widely available.
Tim Carroll, chairman of the council's environment committee, said: 'It is up to local authorities to lead the way and set an example to businesses. Green fuels reduce emissions and improve air quality. I am pleased to accept delivery of these cars and would confirm Somerset County Council's commitment to alternative forms of public transport and more efficient fuels which will help protect the environment for future generations.'
