From a Council fleet perspective we operate a 10 year vehicle and plant replacement programme which takes national legislation into account. The council already operates 26 electric vehicles and will continue to increase the numbers to meet the target and implement appropriate council infrastructure to keep abreast of new vehicles and technologies as they become available.
8. Moray Council has a Service Plan commitment to increase numbers of chargers by 3% per year but this is dependent on Grant Funding being available.
