Dear Cheshire West and Chester Council,

I was wondering if you were going to be following up on the decision to bring EV charging points to Cheshire West and Chester.

I myself own an EV and if you look. On EV maps there is a huge difference between the number of EV charges within our towns than others and I can not find public chargers without travelling.

Considering the move to EVs and the promise to reduce pollution I am. Shocked that no council EV chargers already exist.

Many other councils have implemented this in council car parks etc.

It was said you would start this bwofee the end of 2018 however I haven't seen any in Northwich yet.

So have you started?

If so where are they?

Are they free or charged?

If not what are you doing to prioritise this need moving forwards?

Yours faithfully,

Charlene Stuart

FOI West, Cheshire West and Chester Council

Dear Charlene Stuart,

 

Thank you for your request for information of 17^th January 2020 which has
been logged as RFI 2153 and has been dealt with under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000. We confirm that Cheshire West and Chester Council
holds information relating to your request.

 

For the purpose of clarity your request has been reproduced below, with
responses to your specific questions below;

 

I was wondering if you were going to be following up on the decision to
bring EV charging points to Cheshire West and Chester.

 

I myself own an EV and if you look. On EV maps there is a huge difference
between the number of EV charges within our towns than others and I cannot
find public chargers without travelling.

 

Considering the move to EVs and the promise to reduce pollution I am
shocked that no council EV chargers already exist.

 

Many other councils have implemented this in council car parks etc.

 

It was said you would start this before the end of 2018 however I haven't
seen any in Northwich yet.

 

There are two charging points in the Barons Quay car park in Northwich and
have been for over a year which are slow chargers.

 

So have you started?

 

Our Phase 1 rollout is due to commence this financial year (April
2019-31^st Mar 2020) although it may be delayed until April at two sites
due to power supply limitations and lease issues. Additional
infrastructure will follow subject to resources. It should be noted that
Hadfield Road and Northwich Memorial Hall were considered as part of this
process but local grid restrictions mean that there is presently
insufficient power available at these locations.

 

If so where are they?

 

The locations are listed above, upcoming sites are listed below

The Phase 1 sites selected for the installation of 22KW chargers are as
follows

Chester Road Car Park – Neston

Park Street Car Park – Northwich

Moor Lane Car Park – Frodsham

Bishop Street Car Park – Chester

Brook Street Car Park-Chester*

Shrewsbury Road Car Park-Ellesmere Port*

*subject to final agreement

 

Are they free or charged?

 

There will be a charge to use them on a pay as you go basis. Energy supply
will be from certified renewables.

 

If not what are you doing to prioritise this need moving forwards?
