Answer for Go Ultra Low City Scheme

Answered By: 
The Mayor

London's Go Ultra Low City Scheme was the result of a joint bid by the GLA, TfL and London Councils to the Office for Low Emission Vehicles.

One element of the bid will develop eight local 'Neighbourhoods of the Future' (NoF) schemes across London, seven of which will be borough-led. The NoF schemes will showcase and test innovative electric vehicle charging technology, policies and initiatives. These schemes have all been selected because they are innovative, have local support, help promote electric vehicles and have a clear monitoring strategy to support knowledge sharing with other boroughs and regions.
