One of the Town Council vehicles was long overdue for renewal and it was agreed that an electric charge van be purchased. The van has been branded to enable members of the public to see it more easily around the town.

The new van is fully electric and covers 174 miles. The new electric van will be used by the Town Wardens who inspect play areas and carry out day to day tasks on the Town Council’s public open spaces.

Cllr Dr Merilyn Canet, Chairman of the Open Spaces & Leisure Committee said “Sevenoaks Town Council is leading the way forward in improving the environment with its new vehicle. We now have an electric powered van for use around the town’s lovely parks, gardens and cemeteries. Especially during these difficult times residents have enjoyed using the wellmaintained Green Spaces in Sevenoaks.”

Sevenoaks Town Council has also arranged for public accessible vehicle charging points to be installed at its Council Offices site in Bradbourne Vale Road and at the new Bat & Ball Centre. Unfortunately, the installation of these facilities has been delayed due to COVID 19.
