Electric vehicle charge points
We have worked with MER and BP Pulse to install electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at various locations across the district.
The charge points open up EV ownership to residents who don't have access to off-street parking, whilst also providing a place for drivers to top-up on electricity whilst visiting nearby shops.
EV drivers are required to provide their own charging cables as the charging points are untethered.
The charging points are all fast charging of between 7kW and 22kW, as well as being double-headed which allows two cars to be charged by one point, at the same time.
More EV charging locations can be found on ZapMap to find your nearest charge point.
