Electric vehicles (EVs) can help us achieve cleaner transport and air in Norwich.
Norwich City Council itself provides public EV charge points in two locations:
- Rose Lane multi-storey car park - 6 charge points, 7kW fast charge (parking fee applies – check website for tariff)
- UEA Enterprise Centre car park - 2 charge points, 50kW rapid charge (2 hour maximum stay – no parking fee)
Charging point locations
We’re keen to encourage greater use of electric vehicles and the introduction of new charging infrastructure through the Transport for Norwich Strategy.
As part of new development we generally require provision of EV charge points.
EV charging at home or work
If you want to charge an electric vehicle on the street using a power cable to an EV charge point on your property this is not recommended as it could cause a tripping hazard for pedestrians on the pavement.
Norwich City Council and Norfolk County Council will keep this issue under review and consider how householders and businesses without off-street parking can get electric vehicles charged, in the meantime please use public EV chargepoints or consider using an electric hybrid vehicle that has an alternative energy source.
If householders or businesses that have their own parking want to have EV chargepoints fitted there are available from the Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV).
