Lib Dem By-Election Candidate says, "Bovingdon Green by Name... but not in Nature!"

Bovingdon No Charge PointMike Chapman, the Liberal Democrat candidate in the Dacorun Bourough Council By-Election in the Bovingdon, Flaunden & Chipperfield Ward is anxious that we cut pollution, reduce traffic noise and improve respiratory health.

So he was very interested when Lib Dem County Councillor Nick Hollinghurst drove over from Tring to help - in his all-electric car.

Nick says,

"From well to wheels, electric motors beat oil-fired ones in energy efficiency. Add in the fact that wind and solar now make significant contributions to the UK's electricity supply and you find that electric motoring is a very much greener form of personal transport than petrol or diesel powered cars."

"Not only is air pollution dramatically cut, but traffic noise is reduced, the street scene is quieter and calmer and the risk of lung disease is reduced."

Lib Dems try to practise what they preach. But where can you charge up a an electric car or bike in Bovingdon? There's not even a car park to put a charging point in. Bovingdon has a Green, and a Green Lane, but its not very 'green' in the environmental sense of the word.!"

"This is another example of the villages being short of facilities due to longterm Conservative complacency!" says Mike.
