The new Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill demonstrates that cleaner air is a Government priority. Low emission vehicles form a key part of DfT's air quality plans, and funding is available for local authorities to support ULEV schemes.

You will explore recent legislation and its impact, the various funding pots available and current good practice in delivering ULEV locally.

Key Issues to be Addressed:
