We have a number of charging points for electric vehicles, which are available for the general public to use.
Charging your vehicle
When parked at any of our charging points, the vehicle must be actively charging, and must not go over the time limit allowed.
Once you have finished charging your vehicle, please unplug and move away from the charge point to allow other motorists to use the facilities.
To charge your vehicle, you must pay a charging fee and parking fee, if applicable.
The charging fees may vary, dependent on the provider or type of charging equipment.
All charges will be in line with the local and regional average and subject to changes.
