Talks for making Birmingham’s vehicles more environmentally friendly have begun today at the Birmingham City Council.

Speaking at the Council meeting today, Councillor Stewart Stacey discussed the Electric Vehicle (EV) Charge Point Network Development Programme.

He suggested that electric charging points be made available to not only taxis and hire cars but also to the general public.

The talks come after the government published a report on tackling nitrogen dioxide

She also urged that such charging points must be distributed evenly to ensure flexibility.
