Black Country Transport – Ultra Low Emission Vehicle Strategy

Black Country Transport (BCT), a strategic transport partnership between Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton Councils, are consulting on our Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) Vision and Strategy. The Strategy aims to accelerate the uptake of ULEVs across the area in anticipation of a nationwide 2035 ban on the sale of petrol and diesel vehicles. The Government’s proposed ban is aimed at combating the environmental and public health implications of transport emissions. Our ULEV Strategy recommends the infrastructure and policies required across the Black Country to support the transition and overlaps with the West Midlands ULEV Strategy to ensure a joined-up regional approach. Black Country Councils would like to invite your feedback on the ULEV strategy by taking part in this statutory consultation.  Your responses will help shape the final policy document and ensure our infrastructure plans are centred around our residents’ and business’ needs.
