Car club helps housing developers meet Section 106 planning obligations
A new fully managed car club that enables housing developers to meet Section 106 planning obligations is now available from Europcar’s Ubeeqo car sharing brand.
The solution has been developed to provide sustainable mobility solution that reduces the strain on local roads and parking, and enables developers to meet the needs of the local community.
It covers three options: from dedicated onsite cars accessible only to residents of a development, through onsite cars available for all local residents, to resident access to all Ubeeqo vehicles.
Electric, hybrid and petrol vehicles are available, and residents can book cars via the Ubeeqo app or online and use RFID technology to unlock and lock them as they need them.
A further core benefit for developers is that the full turn-key service means they can integrate the car club into their scheme but can be completely ‘hands-off’ in its day to day management. A dedicated Ubeeqo fleet team manages all aspects of vehicle support, including maintenance and parts, servicing, insurance and claims as well as accident and roadside assistance where needed. Transfers to servicing garages and tyre changes and interior and exterior cleaning are also included.
“Ubeeqo was created to redefine the concept of car sharing, making it more personal and enjoyable for anyone and everyone, helping drivers to express themselves and be who they are behind the wheel,” said Carl Pittam, development director, Ubeeqo. “Our new offering not only helps developers meet their Section 106 obligations and increase their chances of success in the planning process, but it also provides vital consumer choice, as home buyers increasingly look at how to reduce their own impact on the environment.”
