Look out for Zero 2 driving around the town: Second Electric Van for Sevenoaks Town Council
Published: 22 March 2023
In November 2019 Sevenoaks Town Council made Climate Change and Carbon Neutral initiatives a No 1 Priority. The priority will be included in consideration of all Town Council activities.
One of the practical actions agreed was to replace the Town Council vehicles when needed with electric vehicles. A second van has been branded, similar to the first 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.
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, and more potential installations are being researched.
