Scrutiny Input: The Environment Scrutiny Committee was consulted on three occasions, 15th January 2020, 4th March 2020 and 13th January 2021 in the course of drafting the ULEV strategy. Significant outcomes from Scrutiny members on these dates included, to begin with an incremental approach to the infrastructure rollout, targeting the easiest on street residential locations first and focusing attention on the more complex issues later. It was also noted that the strategy needed to be flexible in order to accommodate inevitable technology advances in the next 1-5 years. In addition, it would be preferred if the first phase of sites encouraged the maximum number of people to charge their vehicles.
