Electric Vehicle Charging Point consulation

We want your views about installing EVCs on one or two sites in the village; the Village Hall car park and the canalside car park adjacent to the electricity pole. We are looking at different funding options which could enable either the village or a commercial/charitable enterprise to own and maintain the EVCs.
Users will pay for the electricity consumed. We intend that the majority of customers will be short term visitors and residents without off road parking.
Both sites are feasible.
Currently, the Village Hall has capacity for twin 7kw chargers.
At the canal site, Northern Powergrid will make a 3 phase connection to the
existing overhead line giving a capacity of twin 22kw chargers.

Goodbyes and welcomes

The Parish Council was saddened to receive the resignation of Cllr William Barron and Cllr Sam Berry and thank them for all they have done to help the Parish Council on projects which have benefitted the village.

Following advertising the vacancies the Parish Council was able to co-opt two new Councillors, Edward Coulson and Andrew Binns who we are sure will be a great asset to the Parish Council and the village.
