Draft Low Emission Vehicle Strategy 2018-2022 Consultation

Closed 13 Aug 2018

Opened 29 Jun 2018


Improving local air quality by reducing emissions from road traffic is a priority for Lewisham. Providing an accessible network of electric vehicle charging points will play a vital role in facilitating the uptake of electric vehicles. This is a necessity to deliver air quality improvements and achieve the Mayor of London’s target for a zero emission transport network by 2050.

Lewisham has drafted its first Low Emissions Vehicle Strategy detailing how we intend to promote low emission vehicle use and implement the supporting infrastructure required to charge these vehicles. The overall vision for the strategy is:

To ensure that all of Lewisham’s residents, businesses and visitors are within 500m of a charging point by 2020, with a range of options available that remain fit for purpose and encourage further uptake of low emission vehicles. 

Why your views matter

Low Emission Vehicles are seen as part of the solution in reducing air pollution. After switching to walking, cycling and public transport for every day travel, low emission vehicles will become the motorised option for transport in London over the coming years.

To help Lewisham residents and business make the switch to Low emission transport this strategy sets out the borough’s targets in achieving easy access to Electric Vehicle Charging points. Feedback to this consultation will enable the borough to ensure we are directing our time and resources in the right direction.
