An update from Cornwall Council regarding the electric vehicle infrastructure strategy in Cornwall:

“We would like to hear your views on the future of electric vehicle charging in Cornwall. Your feedback will help finalise an Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategy and shape future bids for government funding for more public charge points.

Our strategy aims to define the direction of travel for expanding the EV charge point network in Cornwall and the role of the council. The strategy forecasts the number of EVs expected in Cornwall up to 2050 and how many public charge points could be needed by 2030. We have identified actions to help us meet this demand, recognising that residents, visitors and businesses will have different needs. Currently, our focus is on supporting the transition to electric cars and vans.

The strategy does not identify locations which are suitable to install charge points. After the strategy is adopted, we will develop these plans, working with local communities and organisations.

You can get involved in two ways:

  1. Visit https://letstalk.cornwall.gov.uk/ev-infrastructure-strategy to read the draft Strategy and complete our survey. The survey will be open until 14th January 2024.
  2. You’re invited to join our online stakeholder event on 5th December between 11.00am-12.30pm. At the event, we will share a summary of our draft Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Strategy. There will also be opportunity for questions and discussion. To register for this event please email connectingcornwall@cornwall.gov.uk with your name and the name of the organisation you represent.

Many people have questions about EVs. For more information take a look at this government leaflet which addresses 19 common misconceptions.

More information about Cornwall’s current charge points can be found on our website: https://www.cornwall.gov.uk/transport-parking-and-streets/sustainable-transport/electric-vehicle-s-in-cornwall

Thank you.”
