Electric car plans for Brighton



Electric car plans for Brighton
Brighton and Hove City Council is planning to become the first area in the UK outside of London to install electric car charging points.

People in Brighton and Hove will soon see four charging points placed across the city, while up to ten are to be introduced before the end of 2009.

According to Geoffrey Theobald, the city council's environment councillor, the scheme will be put forward at a cabinet meeting this week.

He noted that Brighton wants to live up to its reputation for being innovative by encouraging businesses, residents and visitors to adopt green transport solutions.

"We want to encourage people to use electric cars in Brighton and Hove by making it as easy as possible for drivers to charge up their vehicles in the city," Mr Theobald said.

"Electric vehicles produce zero emissions and so are much better for the air quality in town and city centres than petrol and diesel-powered vehicles."

A low carbon fuel vehicle, the hybrid Prius, is the official mayoral car of Brighton and Hove City Council.
