Plan for dozens of electric car charging points across Plymouth

Plymouth City Council is asking local residents and businesses for their views on a new strategy aimed at increasing the use of low-emission vehicles.

The draft Cleaner Vehicles Strategy has been drawn up to encourage greater use and ownership of low-emission and electric cars, reduce pollution and help achieve the city’s carbon reduction targets.

The use of electric vehicles is expected to increase significantly in the UK over the next five to 10 years, with Government investment in programmes such as Plugged-in-Places, which will see 8,500 car charging points installed in eight key areas. It is predicted that by 2020, 12 per cent of all new cars bought will be electric.

The Council is proposing to provide similar facilities in Plymouth, with a network of charging points at sites with high numbers of car visitors and where vehicles are parked for a long time. It is hoped that these charging points will be delivered in three phases between now and 2026.
