WCC is particularly interested in hearing about areas where there is a high demand for electric vehicle charging including residential streets with no off-street parking, public car parks and rural locations.

Cllr Jan Matecki, WCC’s portfolio holder for transport and planning, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for everyone in Warwickshire to get involved in the roll out of our electric vehicle charging infrastructure.

"We’re particularly keen to hear from residents in Nuneaton and Bedworth and the county’s more rural locations, so that we can ensure that access to electric vehicle charging is increased in the areas where it’s most needed.

“We know that more people are keen to move away from fossil-fuel powered vehicles and that our role in this important shift is to provide increased charging infrastructure that makes this switch both possible and desirable.”
