Operators of vehicle fleets in the Camborne, Pool, Illogan and Redruth area are invited to attend a free event to promote a new scheme that could help them save money and improve air quality.

The Cornwall ECO Stars Fleet Recognition Scheme is being launched on Thursday 16th June. Cornwall ECO Stars is a free, voluntary scheme that provides recognition, guidance and advice on operational best practice to operators of goods vehicles, buses, coaches and commercial vehicle fleets.

The scheme is now being introduced in Cornwall and is initially open to businesses operating in the Camborne, Pool, Illogan and Redruth (CPIR) area. Operators do not have to be based in the CPIR area and the fleet can be any size – from just one vehicle to dozens. The scheme will be delivered by Transport and Travel Research Ltd, on behalf of Cornwall Council’s Public Protection Service.

To publicise the scheme a launch event is being held on Thursday 16th June at 10am in the council offices at Dolcoath Avenue, Camborne. Any operators interested in coming along to the event are asked to contact Transport and Travel Research on 01543 416416 to book a place.

Geoff Brown, Cornwall Council’s Portfolio Holder for Communities, said: “Cornwall ECO Stars scheme is a great opportunity for operators in the Camborne, Pool, Illogan and Redruth area to get free advice on improving their fleet efficiency. We hope to see people come along to the event to find out how they can benefit from joining the scheme and contribute to improving air quality in the area.”
