Approval has been granted to convert parking spaces into electric vehicle charging points in Aylesbury. Bucks Council has given the green light to Raw Charging, an electric vehicle company, to install five new charging points at Aylesbury Shopping Park.

The scheme involves converting eight existing parking spaces into charging points, with three new chargers to be installed at the busy site. Aylesbury currently has only six public EV charging locations, according to BP Pulse’s map. NTR Planning, representing Raw Charging, designed the hub to minimize its impact on the surroundings.

Raw Charging plans to install a CPE 250 Charger, two HYC 150 Chargers, six bollards, and a pillar to support the new hub. Bucks Council aims to have 1,000 publicly-accessible charge points in the county by 2027 and secured £1.9 million in government funding for the electric charging rollout earlier this year.

“It’s excellent to hear that we’ve been successful in our funding bid to further support the installation of hundreds of new charge points across Buckinghamshire,” stated Councillor Steven Broadbent in February. The deployment will proceed at a rapid rate thanks to this money, greatly assisting individuals who do not have access to off-street parking.
