Question 03/20

Question:

As the Government are stating that all new cars will have to be electrically powered in 15 years time, does the Council have a policy for (a) the introduction of charging points around the district? and (b) will the Council be instructing developers to provide charging points in new developments, particularly where parking provision is not on driveways but in shared spaces? Many thanks. (17/02/2020)

Answer:

Thank you for your question.  I trust the following link helps satisfy your enquiry:

The Council has recently set up a Climate Change Steering Group https://rother.moderngov.co.uk/mgCommitteeDetails.aspx?ID=250.

A draft environment strategy has been produced by this Group, which sets out the Council’s recommendations to develop plans for an electric vehicle charging network across the County.  (20/02/2020)
