UK Electric Car Charging: Public charging points in West Sussex

Electric vehicle charging points will soon be appearing at locations across West Sussex. Twenty points are being provided free of charge by SSE Contracting, in partnership with the County Council and the district and borough councils.

The first 2 charging points, located outside Crawley Town Hall, went online in December 2010. The table below indicates the current status and location of all the public charging points in West Sussex.

The West Sussex charging points are part of the Charge Your Car network. An interactive map showing the site locations is available on their website.

Membership costs £50 per year but the electricity is free. Members of the network also have access to charging points in other areas such as Brighton & Hove.

The County Council is encouraging developers to include provision for EV charging points at new residential and employment sites. Southern Rail is also planning to install charging points at some railways stations, including Shoreham.
