Survey: Where you want to see Electric Vehicle charging points in Cardiff North

Anna McMorrin MP are delighted to have received a great response to the survey we launched in September to find out constituents’ views on electric vehicles.

 

More than 170 people replied to share their views on barriers to owning electric vehicles – including cost and availability of charging points.

We also asked about specific points where EV charging points could be located in Cardiff North and have received very useful feedback which we are passing on to the Council.

 

We hope this will inform future planning of EV charging points at Council-owned sites in Cardiff North.
