North Norfolk District Council is pleased to launch the use of the electric vehicle charging points installed at two car parks, in Albert Street, Holt, and Morris Street, Sheringham. This is part of ongoing works to get electric vehicle chargepoints in six locations across the District.

The charging points use a web-based system called ‘GeniePoint’ to operate vehicle charging and payments; the website allows customers to top up credit and sends a text message when charging is complete.

There will be two different charging tariffs whilst you park:    

  • Standard tariff 08:00 – 18:00 hours:  £0.30p /kWh + £0.50p connection fee plus normal parking fee
  • Resident tariff’ 18:00 – 08:00 hours: £0.30p / kWh (no connection fee) plus parking between these hours is free of charge

The installation of these units have been positioned in areas where many nearby properties do not have their own off-street parking, allowing the Council to provide charging points and make Electric Vehicles more accessible to both residents and visitors.

Cllr Nigel Lloyd, Portfolio Holder for Environment for North Norfolk District Council, said: “We are delighted to finalise the installation of these charging points in our Sheringham and Holt car parks. These units will improve the accessibility of electric vehicles to both our visitors and residents alike in the District. Work continues in Wells, Fakenham, Cromer and North Walsham car parks to get EVCs in place as part of the Council’s green agenda.”
