What is happening and why?
There have been different schemes launched in parts of the UK that allow residents with low emission cars to receive a discount on their parking permits. Some, such as Richmond Borough, are even allowing car parking for qualifying vehicles for free! Research shows that Richmond upon Thames householders are producing more Co2 than most other boroughs in London. Therefore by implementing these schemes, Richmond hopes to make a positive impact on reducing the Co2 emission and helping global warming.
