Help shape proposals for cleaner and healthier travel in Surrey

Published: 18 June 2018

Moving towards sustainable, low emission transport

You may have seen articles in the media about the UK Government committing to end the sale of all new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2040. This is all part of the UK's plan to reduce air pollution from transport emissions which can damage the public's health, the environment and contribute to climate change.

So what is Surrey County Council doing to reduce harmful emissions in Surrey? There are two draft strategies that we would like your feedback on which set out how we aim to reduce emissions and move towards more sustainable forms of transport in the county.

  1. Low Emissions Transport Strategy – this outlines ways in which air quality can be improved through changes which will help to reduce transport emissions.
  2. Electric Vehicle Strategy – this outlines plans to expand the public charging point network required for electric vehicles and support the increased use of these types of vehicles within the county.

You can read the two draft strategies and give your feedback online here.

The consultation closes on 26 August 2018. For a copy of the consultation in an alternative format (e.g. large print), please call 03456 009 000 or text 07860 053 465.
