Major electric vehicle charging point project agreed

A major contract to install electric vehicle charging points has now been signed which is set to benefit thousands of drivers in Horsham District. This is a major step forward to help improve sustainability in the District and contribute towards the Council’s carbon neutral goals for the District.

A large scale roll out of public electric vehicle chargepoints across the county will take place within the next decade as a result of close collaboration between Horsham District Council and West Sussex County Council.  This major project provides a blueprint for other local authorities across the UK to deliver affordable, reliable, and accessible chargepoints in their thousands.

For the Horsham District this project will see thousands of charge points installed on streets, in public sector car parks and on community facilities, helping many drivers without off street parking to go electric.

This ambitious new chargepoint network will give residents the confidence to go electric in time for a ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles in 2030.

It is one of the first steps in delivering the ambitious vision set out by Horsham District Council to reduce carbon emissions across the area working towards improving both general air quality for residents and overall environmental credentials to address climate change.

This project will be part of the UK’s largest electric vehicle chargepoint deployment by a local authority, providing a blueprint for other local authorities across the UK to deliver affordable, reliable, and accessible chargepoints in their thousands.

UK-based Connected Kerb is fully funding the project and will also manage and maintain the charge points on an ongoing basis.
