Work is set to begin on the installation of public electric vehicle charging points across the county

The work will be undertaken over the next few months, with enabling works at Post Office Lane car park, Denbigh and Bowling Green car park, St Asaph, starting the first week of November.

The project aims to open up possibilities for people to transition to an electric vehicle where they didn’t previously have access to a charging facility. The work expected to be completed by January 2023

It is a part of the Council’s action to tackle climate change following the declaration of a Climate and Ecological Emergency in 2019 and adoption of the Climate and Ecological Change Strategy in 2021.

Other Electric vehicle initiatives are involved in the council’s goal to meet the target of a net carbon zero council by 2030.

Cllr Barry Mellor, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “ “This is an important step forward in supporting community members who want to transition to electric vehicles but don’t have the facilities to do so. It will also help attract more electric vehicle drivers into our towns to benefit footfall and local business as a whole.

“Getting the infrastructure in place to support public use of electric vehicles across the county is important to tackle climate change and I look forward to seeing the end result which will also provide useful data to inform potential future expansion analysis of the EV Charging network here in Denbighshire.”

“Denbighshire County Council apologise for any inconvenience that these works may cause and we are grateful for local cooperation and patience during this time to ensure that the works are completed as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
