Fleets offered incentive to use electric power

WESTMINSTER City Council is promoting the use of electric vehicles by offering fleets a number of incentives to use them.

The council hosted an electric vehicle roadshow on Tuesday in a bid to encourage better take-up of the vehicles and help to reduce pollution and improve air quality. Councillor Justin Powell-Tuck, chairman of Westminster City Council's city management committee, said: 'Westminster is trying to encourage the use of electric cars to reduce noise and pollution levels that have a serious impact on the health of Londoners.

'We have made some significant economic advantages that businesses should seriously consider, particularly companies involved in distribution.'

Incentives offered to companies using electric vehicles include free parking arrangements in certain car parks, a discount for residents' parking and free recharging for the vehicles in five car parks.
