Issue details

EV Charging Infrastructure Network

To approve the partnering with WSCC, along with other districts and boroughs across the county, on a scheme to develop an extensive county-wide EV charging network, by nominating sites in the borough council’s ownership to be part of this EV charging network.

WSCC will procure a supplier to deliver, on a concession basis, one consistent, affordable, easy to use, reliable, widely accessible and recognisable charging network across the county, providing renewable energy charging primarily for those residents who do not have access to off road parking and would be unable to switch to EV without public charging.

The scheme will improve and expand significantly provision of electric vehicle charging infrastructure across the borough to meet existing and future demand and encourage the shift away from petrol/diesel vehicles.
