Green vision for electric cars on Camden's streets
THERE will be hundreds more electric vehicles on our streets and centres where cyclists can park their bikes and get a shower, if ideas put forward by Camden Council are adopted to fight climate change
THERE will be hundreds more electric vehicles on our streets and special centres where cyclists can park their bikes and get a shower, if ideas put forward by Camden Council are adopted to fight climate change.
The proposals, which also include car clubs and measures to make it easier to walk around the borough, have been published as part of a consultation for the council's Green Transport Strategy.
Environment boss Cllr Mike Greene hopes residents will read the new strategy and share their ideas on how carbon emissions can be cut.
He said: "We need everyone's help if we are going to make Camden a greener and better place to live, learn, work and visit.
"The Green Transport Strategy contains a variety of exciting initiatives aimed at improving our local environment. I hope everyone will take this opportunity to get involved and help make a difference."
As part of the project there will be green transport exhibitions at St Pancras and Swiss Cottage libraries, which will run from January 17 until the consultation period ends on February 22.
