Government funding for electric vehicle charging points in Northumberland

Government funding for electric vehicle charging points in Northumberland

Provide additional funding to county councils to create additional charging points for electric vehicles.

Why is this important?

The small number of charging points are being monopolised by taxi firms stopping the general public from charging their vehicles. Northumberland council blames lack of government funding. If the government wants to encourage the public to drive electric, the charging infrastructure must be improved.
