Electric vehicle charging points installed in Netherfield and Carlton

Drivers in Netherfield and Carlton will now have more chances to recharge their electric cars.

Gedling Borough Council has installed 14 new electric vehicle charging points across the two towns – with more to follow across the borough.

The charging points have installed as part of the council’s Air Quality Action Plan and a county wide Go Ultra Low scheme by Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County Councils, BP Chargemaster and D2N2 to install 230 charging sockets across the region.

Nottingham City Council will be working with Gedling Borough Council to install more charging points in the near future.

Six charge points have been installed in the Morris Street car park, Netherfield, and eight in Frederick Avenue Car Park, Carlton with others planned to be installed in Arnold and Mapperley.

Electric vehicle drivers can access the charge points using an app or RFID card.

Residents and businesses with a postcode in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, Derby or Derbyshire can register online for a D2N2 card to take advantage of a reduced tariff of 20p per Kilowatt when using D2N2 charge points.

Leader of Gedling Borough Council, Councillor John Clarke said: “We’re very pleased that these electric charging points have been installed in Netherfield and more are planned in the borough.

“We have been working with our colleagues at Nottingham City Council to get appropriate points around the borough as part of our ongoing commitment to providing cleaner energy in the borough.

He added: We already have points in Arnold, including on our jubilee house building, and we also have electric vehicles with more planned.”
