Tackling climate change and improving local air quality
We are committed to tackling climate change and improving local air quality. 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 air pollution emissions and are extremely beneficial in terms of improving air quality. The distance that electric vehicles can travel is gradually increasing due to improvements in battery technology.
Electric vehicles are exempt from the congestion charging scheme, pay no road tax (Vehicle Exercise Duty) and benefit from reduced company car tax.
Camden currently has 28 on-street charge points in the borough. However, these charge points are in the process of being upgraded. At present, 18 of the charge points have been upgraded and we are working on the upgrade of the remaining points.
Further information on these charge points and where they are can be found below:
