Electric Vehicle Charging and Rural Communities
People from 90 organisations – village halls and parish councils – attended a zoom event hosted by Rural Kent on Kent County Council’s scheme to develop a network of electric vehicle charge points across the county on 15th June 2021. As rural areas are less likely to be attractive to commercial providers, KCC are supporting the installation of charge points in village hall and parish council-owned car parks and other sites.
Tim Middleton, Transport Innovation Programme Manager at KCC, gave more details of how installation and management of the charge points would work, and how to apply to be part of the scheme.
Chenice Howard-Sparkes of Chartham PC and Nicola Greenaway of Ditton PC talked about their experiences so far. This was followed by a Q & A session.
We will be running future events on Electric Vehicle Charging in future, and will be letting our members know about these in due course!
