The national drive to install electric car chargers has led to a borough council to take further steps to set up one of the units in a prime car park site.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council is looking at installing an electric vehicle charging point at the Fullers Hill car park.

The council’s economic development committee has agreed the project should move forward, with a further report to be drawn up looking at fees to be charged.

In 2017 the council joined a consortium of local authorities in the eastern region that bid for funding from a new grant introduced by Highways England.

The rapid charge point at Fullers Hill would charge two vehicles at the same time.

The borough council says fees for charging vehicles would meet maintenance costs for looking after the charging unit.

Highways England will review the process and give formal approval for the installation of the charging unit.
