Buckingham Town Council invests in its first electric vehicle

Buckingham Town Council is excited to announce that its Greenspaces Team has a brand-new electric van meaning the Council will be able to serve the community in a more energy efficient and environmentally friendly way.

The new addition to the fleet is a Renault Kangoo and is 100% electric. The new van, complete with signwriting, will be seen out and about in Buckingham when the Greenspaces Team carries out many of its duties including building and parks maintenance and event support.

Councillor Ruth Newell, Chair of the Environment Committee added: “I am pleased that we had the opportunity to replace one of our vehicles and that we have been able to fund an electric vehicle perfect for our green spaces team to use around the Town and Parks and environmentally friendly in line with our Climate Change Action Plan.”

So far feedback from staff using the vehicle has been ‘excellent’.
