Consultations on Low Emissions Transport and Electric Vehicles

Surrey County Council supports the Government's long term vision for walking and cycling to be the natural choice for shorter journeys, for an improved customer experience of public transport and for nearly every car and van on UK roads to be zero-emission by 2050. At a local level, this will have health benefits – improving the quality of the air we breathe in Surrey. On a wider level this will reduce greenhouse gas emissions that are harmful to the environment.

Surrey County Council has drafted two new additions to the Surrey Transport Plan, these are the Low Emissions Transport Strategy and the Electric Vehicle Strategy. They will enable us to work with borough and district councils, businesses and communities to take advantage of electric vehicle technology and other opportunities to reduce emissions from transport.

The public consultation on these strategies is now open.
