The council’s electric vehicle charging points are managed by Pod Point and are on the Pod Point Open Charge (free to use) network.
The charging points have a type 2 Mennekes socket with a single phase 7kw 32A AC supply. Your vehicle and charging cable should be compatible with this connection type and supply. Each Pod Point can charge two vehicles at the same time.
Access to the chargers has recently been upgraded and you can now only access the chargers via a smart mobile phone app or the web site (link below).
To access the chargers you will first need to visit the POD Point website and register by filling out the details in create a free account:
