Electric vehicle charging points to get go-ahead
Wiltshire Council's Cabinet is set to approve a new electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure plan, which looks to improve the council's EV charging network and work with communities to increase the number of charging points in the county.
The council currently has 76 EV charging points (38 units, two points on each) in its car parks, which are operated and managed by BP Pulse. Many of these were installed several years ago, and there is a need to replace the old units with modern, faster chargers.
The plan will also offer grants to parish, town and city councils to provide more charging points in council-operated car parks.
