Cotswold District Council will soon be introducing rapid Electric Vehicle Charging Points (EVCPs) into the Cotswolds for the very first time.
The EVCPs are due to be installed at the Beeches car park in Cirencester and the Old Market Way car park in Moreton-in-Marsh, thanks to funding from the Government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV).
This should encourage more local people to adopt a greener mode of travel, as the EVCPs will provide them with the flexibility to travel between locations in the north and south of the district and beyond.
The council will be setting aside £500,000 to finance installation work and this will be match funded by Gloucestershire County Council, boosting the total to £1 million.
