Electric car charging coming to Kibworth


Charging points for electric vehicles are to be installed in the School Road car park in Kibworth.   Designated parking bays will be marked out and payment will be by the Podpoint app which can be downloaded on mobile devices.

Cllr Jonathan Bateman, Harborough District Council's portfolio holder for Environment and Regulatory Services, said: "We are introducing electric charging points following requests from the public. Electric vehicles are becoming more popular as a greener way to travel and we want to respond to this by installing them in our own car parks."

The decision to roll-out the facility follows a trial at the Hatrborough Innovation Centre (pictured).
