Under the plan, over 300 charging points will be installed in car parks, train stations and residential streets in the West of England, including 187 in Bristol. To be more specific, the plans include 11 community charging points, 26 charging points in transit places like train stations, shopping centres, cinemas or hotels and 150 on-street residential charging points

The rollout is planned to take until March 2026 and is expected to cost £4.9 million, which is paid for from the combined authority’s green recovery fund.

At a cabinet meeting, Councillor Kye Dudd said: “The rollout will start in the summer and will focus on community charging hubs, destination charging at places like supermarkets, and on-street residential. The investment will mean more residents opt for electric vehicles.”

Councillor Don Alexander, cabinet member for transport, added: “EVs will be part of the solution but we recognise there’s also some downsides in an urban context, particulates and congestion for instance. We’re supporting this but [are] very mindful of the needs of people with disabilities and the need to keep footways clear for people who are not able to work their way around.”,,
