Electric Vehicle Charging Points Being Installed in Car Parks

New electric vehicle charging points are being installed in Greys Road and Kings Road car parks this week and next.

Engineers from Oxfordshire County Council are putting in 14 bays in Kings Road and 12 in Greys Road and these bays have been fenced off during the work.

The park and charge scheme allows residents without off-street parking to park for free overnight and charge up using a ‘fast’ 7 – 22kw EV charging point. The chargers will also provide much needed battery top-ups to commuters and visitors during the daytime.

Councillor Sue Cooper, South Oxfordshire District Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Climate Change and Nature Recovery, said: “This is great news for residents as they will have access to 62 new chargers across the district. This could be the difference to those living in Henley, to make the switch to EV ownership knowing they have easy access to charging points. Being part of this project also shows the council’s determination to take action to tackle the climate emergency, which we are prioritising as part of our corporate plan.”
