My first question at February 17th Municipal District meeting ; “Can the council provide an update on plans and timeline for EV (Electric Vehicle)
charging points around the municipal district?
Report: There are no plans at present to install EV charging points in the Municipal District. Roads, Transportation and Public Safety are currently engaging with relevant stakeholders regarding the installation, maintenance and upgrade of EV charging points across the county with consideration to be given to future proofing EV points, cost analysis, including continued upgrade and maintenance. Current policy restricts the installation of EV charging points to Off Street car parks only. A dedicated clearly marked parking space must also be provided per charge point with adequate enforcement measures in place to ensure access to EV which require charge. Relevant Parking Bye Laws will also have to be reviewed/enacted once the optimal locations are identified to ensure that the dedicated EV charging locations can be enforced. Once the Department have more information the Members will be informed.
