More charge points available across Bucks for electric cars

There will be more kerbside charging points for electric cars across Bucks from this afternoon.

Funding from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles has gone towards the installation and switch-on of the 20 pay-as-you-go hubs, that have been put in neighbourhoods with little or no off-street parking.

They can be found mounted on bollards and lamp posts in Winslow, Amersham, Chesham, High Wycombe, Princes Risborough and Marlow. 

This comes after the news that Buckinghamshire will take part in trials for wireless car charging over the next two years. 

Kerbside charging points can make it easier for those with electric cars who have no garage or driveway.

Mark Shaw, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Transport, said:

"These innovative projects move us forward a huge step in encouraging electric car use in Buckinghamshire.

"We're beginning to break the chicken and egg argument that says society can't expect more electric car users until there are more charging points, and we can't afford to provide more charging points until there are more electric cars on the road."

There are now 59 public charge points across Bucks.
