The move to zero-emission vehicles will assist the United Kingdom in meeting its legally bound climate change commitments.

It will enhance the air quality in all urban areas while also promoting economic growth. With numerous vehicles made in the UK, we will also be at the vanguard of the EV revolution.

The Prime Minister said in 2020 that we will phase out the production of new petrol and diesel cars and trucks before 2030, with all incoming cars and vans being zero-emission vehicles.

The government has committed an incremental £620 million to fund the migration to EVs, in relation to the £1.9 billion announced in the Spending Review 2020. The government has allocated a total of £2.5 billion to car grants and infrastructure.

Local leadership is critical in this process. Local governments play an important role in allowing the shift towards ZEVs in their territories, including proactively assisting the spread of electric vehicle charge points and participating in ensuring that the change is incorporated into larger community needs.

The government recognizes this as a new and complicated subject for local governments. This can result in real or potential hurdles to a successful EV charging station deployment. Crucially, local governments understand their residents’ transportation demands, which should be factored into transport systems.

Local governments can support and steer the market to fulfill the changing demands of residents, enterprises, and tourists through regulations and written strategies.

Even in areas with a two-tier design, district and municipal councils must collaborate with the local Highways Agency on an EV charge point concept and delivery.
