Town Council to consider going green

BSTC Three Wheeler

Conservative-led Bradley Stoke Town Council is considering going green by purchasing an electric vehicle for use by its maintenance staff.

The Council currently operates a red two-stroke pickup van from its Brook Way Activity centre. The van can often be seen on the town’s roads en route to the Council’s other centres at Savages Wood Road and Baileys Court Road.

But the old stager’s days could be numbered as Councillors are due to discuss its replacement by an electric vehicle at tonight’s meeting of the Finance and Leisure Committee.

The meeting is also due to hear an update on “community centre usage”, which has been affected by the decision to move all youth clubs in the town to the Brook Way Activity Centre. Previous users of the centre have had to relocate to one of the other centres or, in at least one case, to non-Council venues.

Tonight’s meeting takes place at the Jubilee Centre, Savages Wood Road, starting at 7:30pm. The press and public are invited to attend.
