According to BP Pulse’s interactive map, Aylesbury only has six public electric vehicle charging locations currently.

NTR Planning, which submitted the application on behalf of the Oxford-based charging business, says the charging hub has been designed to minimise its impact on the surrounding area.

Raw Charging will construct a CPE 250 Charger and two HYC 150 Chargers, plus six bollards and a pillar, to support the new charging hub.

The authority also announced it had successfully secured £1.9 million Government funding to aid its electric charging rollout earlier this year.

Figures released from the authority state that there are 294 publicly-accessible EV charge points in Buckinghamshire, owned by various operators.

This was first announced in an environmental action plan, which can still be found online here.

Councillor Steven Broadbent said in February: “It’s excellent to hear that we’ve been successful in our funding bid to further support the installation of hundreds of new charge points across Buckinghamshire. This funding will ensure the rollout continues at pace, with those without access to off-street parking benefiting hugely.”
