In Dacorum, transport is responsible for 43% of the borough’s greenhouse gas emissions. Electric vehicles have zero tailpipe emissions, making them crucial for reducing the borough’s overall emissions and improving our air quality too.

Dacorum Borough Council are currently developing an Electric Vehicle Strategy in order to support residents transition to electric vehicles. A key part of this will be planning where to install more chargepoints throughout the borough.

Your answers to this survey will ensure that we can plan to meet the borough’s growing needs; provide insight into various electric vehicle initiatives; as well as provide valuable evidence which can help the Council secure funding for chargepoints.
