Oil giant BP given permission for already built charging points
- Credit: Archant
One of the world’s biggest oil and gas companies has been given the all clear to keep two electric vehicle charging points that were built without planning permission.
After realising planning permission was needed to build the charging points, the company applied retrospectively to Breckland Council.
Now one month later, the council has approved the plans, meaning the charging points will stay.
In the decision notice, Breckland’s planning officer said: “No objections to the proposal have been raised by the highway authority, in addition no objections have been received from the town council or neighbours following consultation.
“It is not considered that the proposals would give rise to any amenity issues.”
