Revealed: The 40 streets in Shropshire set to get electric vehicle charging points

Shropshire Council has named 40 areas in the county where it will be installing electric vehicle charging points.

Earlier this month the council announced it had been given more than £900,000 to install electric car charging points across the county.

A meeting next week will be told the local authority wants to install 270 charging points in communities large and small as fast as possible for contractual reasons.

Sales of new petrol and diesel cars are set to be banned in 2030 and sales of electric vehicles are expected to take off.

The council's cabinet meeting on November 9 will hear that areas have been chosen based on a number of factors including the number of residents without access to off-street parking and the availability of existing EV chargepoint installations.

The list of sites reads like an A to W of places in Shropshire, including Albrighton, Shrewsbury, Church Stretton, Clun and Whitchurch.

Among the streets due to get most charging points are 12 in Innage Lane, Bridgnorth; 10 at Gobowen Railway Station; 10 at Aston Street car park, in Shifnal; and 10 at Aston Street car park, in Wem.

The council is working with its charge point operator, Connected Kerb, to use the £902,940 to bring the number of charging points in the county up to 320, across 45 locations.
