GUL Charging Hub for Residential EV Charging

Summary

Milton Keynes Council was awarded a Go Ultra Low City Status, one of four UK Cities and received funding from OLEV (Office for Low Emission Vehicles) to help continue roll of charging infrastructure for both residents and businesses to help support the uptake of electric vehicles.

 

Next steps

Newport Pagnell, MK16 8JS has been proposed for this trial for the following reasons:

  • Proximity to residential areas
  • Availability of parking spaces
  • Availability of power close to car park

The attached plan shows the scale of the proposal with parking bays being managed throughout the trial using a vehicle permit system.

Please could you consider the proposal and provide feedback (both positive and negative) on:

  1. The choice of location
  2. Number of charging points

 This feedback will help us make informed decisions going forward.

A formal TRO process will follow.  A Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) is a legal document which allows the Highways Authority to restrict the parking bays which is enforceable by law. 

All feedback to the proposal, together with the reasoning for the feedback can be sent by clicking on the contact email address. 

The closing date for this consultation is 11 December 2020.

Please submit your comments before the closing date otherwise your comments may not be considered.

Thank you for participating in this consultation exercise.

Purpose

The purpose of this Hub is to provide the ability for residents without off-street parking to be able to own an electric vehicle and have the ability to charge within walking distance of their homes.
