Improving Camden's air quality
We are committed to reducing and mitigating the impact of transport-based emissions in Camden. To help us do this we are encouraging residents to drive electric vehicles as they are particularly suitable for driving in urban areas like Camden where short distances are covered.
These vehicles produce no exhaust emissions and are therefore beneficial, compared to typical petrol/diesel vehicles, in terms of improving air quality. The distance that electric vehicles can travel is increasing due to improvements in battery technology.
Electric vehicles are exempt from the ULEZ and congestion charge, pay no Vehicle Exercise Duty and benefit from reduced resident and business permit prices in Camden.
Our Electric Vehicle Charge Point Action Plan sets out the Council’s plans to develop a comprehensive network of electric vehicle charge points that both responds to existing demand for EV infrastructure and provides for and accelerates the uptake of cleaner vehicles in the future.
