Electric Vehicle Charging

The UK plans to phase out the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030. That’s a big change for drivers, so we want to help people make the switch to electric and help those that already have an Electric Vehicle (EV). Demand for EV charging is growing, and we know that charging may be difficult for those who do not have access to on-street parking; therefore, we invite residents - whether you drive an electric vehicle or not - to take part in our survey, so we can better understand how we can place more charging infrastructure in the Borough. Details of the survey can be found below: 

Survey

Additionally, whether you’re a business looking to upgrade to an electric van but have nowhere to charge it, or you live in a house or flat without a drive and can't charge an EV at home, simply drop a pin in the map below to suggest a location. We’ll use the map for long-term planning and to help with our bids to government for charging point funding.
