Consultation process

The electric vehicle scheme involves cross-working with a number of council services who have been consulted with as the project has been developed. These include fleet services who will be involved in the maintenance and valeting of the fleets and who have also advised on appropriate vehicles to acquire and asset management who have provided advice on site requirements/ budgets for vehicle storage when they aren’t on loan to customers. The Executive Member for Resources and Sustainability has also been appraised of the scheme during its development. Communications and engagement will form a key part of the electric vehicle scheme, with events being held across the city to promote the opportunity to businesses.
