There are two electric vehicle rapid charging points in the carpark of Ivychurch Village Hall. These went live in October 2020, and have proved popular with locals and visitors alike.
As at March 2022, Folkestone & Hythe District Council has partnered with Kent County Council and the first of the district’s new 94 charging points for electric vehicles (EV) are now up and running.
These are in car parks at Church Road, New Romney, High Knocke, Dymchurch, and The Paddocks, Hythe. From Friday 11 March, those at Tram Road, Folkestone, and Wilberforce Road, Sandgate, will be working, making a total of 20 points across the five car parks.
Work is underway at 23 more sites and it is expected all will be operational by the end of April 2022.
The charging points offer a mixture of fast 7Kwh, 22kw and rapid 50Kwh, depending on the location.
A total of 600 points will be installed across the county over the next two years.
