Electric Vehicles

EV Charging Station

Electric vehicles are a key component in the transition to zero emissions transport and communities. Supporting electric vehicle charging stations is one way that Council can help enable electric vehicle (EV) uptake. Council adopted an Electric Vehicle Charging Stations on Public Land Policy in April 2020, to:

  • Support the community in reducing carbon emissions
  • Provide EV charging infrastructure for residents who don’t have access to off-street parking for home charging
  • Increase visitation to town centre’s and retail hubs to improve economic development and tourism
  • Alleviate range anxiety due to lack of EV charging infrastructure
