Dundee City Council is to offer free parking to drivers of electric cars.
The new scheme will allow of drivers of pure electric vehicles to use any of the council run facilities.
It’s hoped the initiative will encourage more city users to adopt zero emission vehicles.
The cars will be able to park in any space, not just those with charging points.
Will Dawson convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee said: “Free car parking for electric vehicles was part of our commitment to the UK Government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) under our Go Ultra Low Scheme launched earlier this year.
“Free parking in Dundee can now be added to the growing list of environmental and social benefits of owning an electric vehicle in the city and I’m sure the scheme will prove popular.
“The funding for this initiative will be covered through the Smarter Choices Smarter Places programme.”
This scheme will go live on Monday December 5. To register car owners must email firstname.lastname@example.org with their name and address, vehicle make, model and registration number.
