Lib Dems secure agreement to promote greener travel

by willforster on 10 December, 2019

Last week, I was pleased to help secure a commitment from Woking Borough Council for them to look at reducing or even removing parking charges for those driving the most environmentally friendly vehicles.

With new flexible pricing systems coming to town centre car parks it is an ideal opportunity to encourage use of less polluting vehicles – a key part of our fight against climate change.

The Lib Dems introduced lower pricing on season tickets for cars according to their CO2 emissions many years ago. We also promoted the addition of electric charging points in car parks.

This is another small step to encourage less polluting behaviour and move towards our climate emergency targets.  The Council’s Climate Change Working Group will now review the details and make a recommendation as soon as possible.
