Crawley Council Response to “More Electric Car Charging points required in the area”

January 7th, 2013 § Comments Off on Crawley Council Response to “More Electric Car Charging points required in the area” § permalink

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,

Brett

Dropped Crawley Council an email regarding the charging points, lack of, in the area.

I think its always prudent to be proactive and question so-called “green-motives” often displayed on the websites.

Naturally it does not hurt to have the latest from the Horse##Q##s Mouth so to speak, to ensure we are not mislead on the map.

Any resident in the Crawley Council Area, as per map, appears to suffer with only 2 charging points in the vicinity of the county##Q##s hall. That##Q##s it. No further installations are available.

Crawly is also strategically positioned between London and Brighton, and it would certainly and MUCH sought after, if thereabout location mid-way London-Brighton-London has had a rapid charging point. I can only imagine how much use those points would have by most keen EV Trip enthusiasts like myself and actually work-home-work commuters from SouthEast.

Even if its pound-coin operated!

Regardless. Just sent off a query to Crawley Council. Wait and See.
