Why your views matter

A Climate Emergency declaration was made by the council in July 2019 and the council pledged to making its activities net zero carbon by 2028. Furthermore, the Black Country Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle Strategy was approved by City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet on 28 July 2021, which requires that most taxi and private hire vehicles to switch to ULEV by 2025. To achieve this target, the Council has a draft proposal of achieving a zero-tailpipe emission or ultra-low emission hackney carriage and private hire vehicle fleet by 2028.
