Many local authorities are not sure where to begin with their mobility plans or lack an in-depth understanding of the ultra-low emission vehicle industry to be able to make the links between multiple initiatives or strategies. The Local Government Support Programme provides this support by providing five dedicated Regional Account Managers who can offer help, expertise and technical guidance in all areas of mobility.
The programme is available to all local authorities across England. We know the importance of sharing best practice and aim to put local authorities in touch with one another to share experiences and ideas.
Our fully funded programme includes:
We also provide workshop and training activities that bring together stakeholders from across departments in an authority to help them create a cohesive and inclusive plan to achieve their project aims. Training can cover all ultra-low emission vehicle technologies and mobility options, last for either half or a full day and can be delivered face-to-face or virtually.
