BUSINESS owners are being invited to get behind the wheel of an electric van which is to be trialled by Daventry District Council (DDC)

The authority is considering the Renault Kangoo electric van for use by its environmental health officers, as part of the council’s commitment to drive down carbon emissions. A special event will be held on Wednesday February 26.

DDCs environmental portfolio holder, Cllr Daniel Cribbin, said: “The council is looking into the possibility of purchasing an electric van as it could prove a great way to further reduce our carbon footprint.

“While it is on loan to the Council we wanted to give members of the business community an opportunity to see the technology for themselves.”
