CHESHIRE West and Chester Council will bring together a showcase next month for all things sustainable travel, to help businesses in the transition to net zero.

The 'Driving Change' event will be held at Ellesmere Port Civic Hall on Monday, December 4, from 9am to 1pm.

The Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport and Highways, Councillor Karen Shore said: "The Council is committed to supporting the local business community to transition to net zero. Our first sustainable travel showcase will feature not just electric vehicles from a number of suppliers, available to test drive, but also a wide range of sustainable travel solutions for businesses."

Representatives from local dealerships will be there on the day to chat through options and showcase some of their electric and hybrid vehicles including cars, vans, scooters, bikes, mobility solutions. Local operators for public transport, active travel and micromobility modes will also be attending.

Exhibitors including charging operators or installers, renewables suppliers and local trade organisations will be available on the day to showcase the latest technologies and business support available in the area. A full detailed list of exhibitors will be confirmed nearer the date.

A number of speakers from Cheshire West and Chester Council, the Energy Saving Trust and Scottish Power Energy Networks will also take to the stage.

Cllr Shore added: "This is a free event for businesses in the borough and tickets are now available. It will be of interest to not just businesses looking to transition to electric vehicles but perhaps also public transport operators, landlords or car park operators looking to introduce EV charging infrastructure or sustainable transport options."
