Our electric vehicle charge points
Council car parks currently contain a combination of 7kW and 50kW chargers. The 7kW chargers are run by WENEA and the 50kW chargers are run by SWARCO.
You can get a free 30-minute parking ticket to display in your electric or hybrid vehicle at council-owned, off-street car parks, while you plug in and charge. Electricity at all charge points in council car parks is subject to a fee.
The charge points are part of the national network.
