Cllr Andy Hadley, portfolio holder for climate response, environment and energy, said: “We are contacted frequently by residents who don’t have any off-street parking requesting a public charging facility nearby, and it’s important that we listen to what our residents want and find solutions – especially when it’s for something that will benefit more than just the individual.

“We want to ensure delivery of local charge points is carried out where they are needed.

“The sooner we all switch to more sustainable ways of travelling, which includes EV vehicles as well as walking or cycling for shorter journeys, the better for the environment.”

The council is planning to install EV charge points in off street “key destinations” and others located near to electric car owners’ homes.

It is also looking at “upgrading and expanding” the existing community car club fleet across the BCP area.
