Electric Vehicles

We are aware that some electric vehicle (EV) chargers are not working, some are faulty and others have been damaged. To find alternative public EV chargers go to: www.zap-map.com

We have begun a programme to replace and install EV chargers across the borough over the next year. Residents can expect more places to charge electric vehicles as part of plans to accelerate a switch to cleaner modes of transport. 

The first phase of the project will see EV chargers in our main car parks. We are applying for a grant from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles to support our installation of new EV chargers. It is planned that the points will be supplied through a partnership with an external provider.
