As the UK leaves the EU and embarks on a transitionary period due to end on 31 December 2020, the BVRLA is providing regular updates to keep members aware of developments.
On Thursday 12 December voters across the UK will have an opportunity to have their say once again on who represents them. The BVRLA and its members can use this time to ensure candidates and the next government appreciate the key issues facing the fleet sector. The association has produced this campaign page to help members navigate the election.
BVRLA members have a unique perspective of the issues facing road transport in the UK and have the purchasing power to tackle them. They have a long track record of working constructively with policymakers in driving down emissions, improving road safety and making road transport more cost efficient and accessible. This manifesto puts forward some ideas for future collaboration.
The BVRLA is leading a campaign to secure clarity from the Government on the future of the Plug-In Car and Van Grants, urging that any end to these grants should be gradual, taking a phased approach in order to allow the market and manufacturers to respond.
It is vital that the UK fleet sector maintains affordable and reliable access to the parts and vehicles it needs to keep the country moving. In the event of No Deal, the association calls on the Government to introduce a package of specific measures to ensure the vehicle rental and leasing sector continues to thrive and maintain its critical contribution to accelerating transport decarbonisation.
On Wednesday 4th September 2019 Chancellor Sajid Javid makes a Spending Round statement to Parliament setting out departmental budgets for 2020-21.
The BVRLA has been joined by over 120 other leading UK businesses, investors and industry bodies to call upon the Government to put climate neutrality by 2050 into legislation.
Ahead of the Spring Statement, the BVRLA has written to the Chancellor to urgently raise the sector’s serious concerns about the impact of future plans for motoring taxation.
The BVRLA has published a Ultra Low Emission Zone factsheet outlining the role that the vehicle rental, leasing and car club sector can play in accelerating the uptake of ultra-low emission vehicles and encouraging people to use more active, public and shared modes of transport. The association has also shared a list of recommendations for policymakers to consider.
To help improve air quality, an Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will be implemented within central London from 8 April 2019. Most vehicles, including cars, vans, and trucks will need to meet new, tighter exhaust emission standards (ULEZ standards) or pay a daily charge to travel within the ULEZ.
