Office for Low Emissions Vehicles Go Ultra Low City Scheme
London's bid to the Office for Low Emission Vehicles 'Go Ultra Low City Scheme' was submitted by the Mayor of London, Transport for London and London Councils on 2 October, with a covering letter to the Secretary of State for Transport. The bid proposed:
- £8m to install residential charging infrastructure using a new pan-London delivery vehicle;
- £4m to create strategic rapid charging hubs across London to service commercial fleets;
- £4.5m to help car club operators to meet a commitment for 50 per cent of their vehicles to be ULEVs by 2025; and
- £3.5m for Neighbourhoods of the Future, borough-led schemes combining this infrastructure investment with behaviour change interventions to encourage local businesses and residents to make the switch to ultra low emission vehicles.
London's bid was successful and the city has been awarded £13m.
A dedicated Senior Project Officer, Louise Clancy, is working with London Councils, the GLA and TfL to deliver the scheme.
