More electric vehicle charging points will pop up in North Norfolk.

They're expected to appear in 7 car parks in the district including some in Wells and Fakenham.

North Norfolk District Council’s Cabinet approved a proposal of the project which should be completed by spring 2020.

It's estimated to cost £250,000 and will be funded by both the Council and The Office for Low Emissions Vehicles (OLEV).

The OLEV is a cross-Government team which aims to promote the use of electric vehicles by helping councils to provide the necessary infastructure to allow their introduction.

Subject the the OLEV funding, the electric vehicle charging points will be installed in NNDC owned car parks in Sheringham, Cromer, Holt, Fakenham, Wells and North Walsham.

They want to meet the expected rise in demand for electric vehicles from 200,000 to 6 million on the road by 2030. 

By installing the points, the Council aims to provide charging points and make EVs more accessible to all residents and visitors. 

It will also support the economies of local towns as the charging points will be available to visitors and residents.

The project forms part of NNDC’s commitment to environmental sustainability, with the Council seeking to make its own operations carbon neutral by 2030.

Cllr Sarah Bütikofer, Leader of North Norfolk District Council, said: 

“We are delighted to bring forward this new initiative which will see 38 Electric Vehicle Chargepoints introduced across the District. 

"This is just the first step on the Council’s path towards delivering our new ‘greener’ agenda.

"Whilst we are working to reduce our own Carbon footprints we want to help residents and visitors to play their part too.”
