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).
