Green light for new electric car charging point in Glossop

Published: 16 September 2020

A further electric car charging site is ready for use at Edward Street Car Park in Glossop as part of our climate friendly car initiative.

The Glossop site follows on from charging sites located at New Street Car Park in Bakewell, Edgefold Road Car Park in Matlock and Shawcroft Car Park in Ashbourne.

Funded by the Government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and BP Chargemaster, up to eight cars can charge up at the site at one time.

Four out of the five sites to be installed across the Derbyshire Dales District Council and High Peak Borough Council areas can now be accessed by the public with the final site at Victoria Park Road in Buxton set to be installed by the end of the month.

Our Cabinet Member for Clean Growth and Regeneration, Councillor Tony King said:

“We’re delighted with the progress we’ve made over the past few months in getting these sites ready and available for use.

“This initiative highlights the council’s commitment to tackling climate change and being another positive step in our aim to achieve net zero carbon emissions in Derbyshire by 2050.

“We hope by making more electric car charging points available across the county it will encourage residents to make the switch to an electric vehicle. Not only does making the switch improve local air quality but residents can also benefit from reduced motoring costs such as fuel and road tax.”

Residents can find the location of the sites on the charge your car website. Drivers also need to register with this website to access the charge points.
