Taking charge of new electric vehicles - DDC officer Ros Sayer with DDC Cabinet Member Cllr Nicholas Kenton
Environmental Enforcement Officers at Dover District Council are driving forward with key work to protect the environment, as the team goes green and takes charge of two new electric vehicles.
The new electric vehicles will be used out and about across the district, as part of the day-to-day work of the Environmental Enforcement team. This covers protecting the local environment through dealing with littering, dog fouling and fly-tipping, and dog warden duties.
The electric vehicles are replacing two diesel vans. These are the first electric vans to be used by Dover District Council staff in our current day-to-day service delivery. The Council is looking at options for expanding the use of electric vehicles in other areas of our work across the district.
There are a number of electric vehicle charging points in the district, including facilities at the new Dover District Leisure Centre.
Cllr Nicholas Kenton, DDC Cabinet Member for Regulatory Services, said: “We are very pleased to be able to take charge of two new electric vehicles. Environmental protection is a vital part of the work of the council, and it’s great that we are able to reduce the impact our vehicles have on the environment as we move forward.”
