The Transition to a Zero Emissions Fleet

Report of the Director of the Built Environment and the Chamberlain.



The Sub-Committee considered a joint report of the Director of the Built Environment and the Chamberlain on proposed measures to ensure that the City Corporation’s vehicle fleet including City of London Police vehicles complies with the requirements of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) which comes into effect on 8th April 2019.


Officers advised that the proposals in the report would go beyond compliance with the ULEZ and would support the City Corporation’s own Strategies including Transport and Clean Air.  In response to questions and observations from Committee Members, officers advised that an Internal Officer Transport Co-ordination Group would be established to rigorously challenge operational requirements and support the move towards a zero emission vehicle fleet.  Following the decision of the Policy and Resources Committee on 21st February 2019, it was proposed the number of Mayoral and Shrievalty vehicles be reduced and the remaining vehicles replaced with electric vehicles.


RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
