Thank you for your enquiry regarding electric charge points.
Supporting electric vehicles is one way of supporting sustainable transport and the council is certainly behind that:
As you already know, the council has two electric charge points installed at the Town Hall which have been there since Nov 2010. We are constantly monitoring usage of these and while it is constantly growing it is still fairly low. I##Q##m confident the council will support the installation of further charge points in the future as demand grows in the Town and in partnership with the Private sector. Any new installations in the future would of course consider the most up to date technology at the time including fast charge technology.
It##Q##s also worth mentioning that local businesses on Manor Royal in Crawley are looking to install charge points and that a number of the major retailers (e.g. ASDA) have policies for installing charge points at their premises. I also understand that Gatwick Airport are looking into installing charge points and may have already done so.
For any further information please don##Q##t hesitate to contact me.
All the best,
Crawley Borough Council
