The Local Authority Transport Decarbonisation Toolkit provides advice to Local Authorities (LAs) on actions they can take to reduce transport carbon emissions, including through case studies and signposting to other published guidance and methodologies. A chapter on zero emission powered light vehicles will be published shortly, to inform LAs and raise awareness of the vehicle type, highlighting potential benefits and use cases, and setting out the steps to take to adopt and further integrate these vehicles in local areas, should they choose to do so.
