Have your say on Electric Vehicle Charging points in Argyll and Bute

Argyll and Bute Council is inviting people to have their say on where additional Electric Vehicle Charging (EVC) points should be located, in the event that funding becomes available to expand the scheme.

There are currently 28 EVC sites situated across Argyll and Bute, however, the Council is consulting members of the public on a draft list of possible new sites as part of a medium to long-term future strategy for EVC infrastructure in the area. Any possible expansion will be strictly dependent on sourcing additional external funding.

The Council’s Policy Lead for Roads and Transport, Councillor Andrew Kain, said: “We would like to add more EVC sites throughout Argyll and Bute so it is important that we consult with our communities and have appropriate plans in place so that we can act quickly should funding become available.

“Argyll and Bute is very geographically widespread and we want to ensure that electric vehicle users feel confident to be able to travel throughout the area and beyond, without the worry of not being able to access a charging point.

“I would encourage people to take part in the consultation, whether or not they own an electric vehicle, so they can help us to plan for the future as we continue to work to deliver a climate friendly Argyll and Bute.”
