New Electric Charging Points to be Installed in Derbyshire Dales and High Peak


A host of new charging points for up to 40 vehicles will be installed in Derbyshire Dales and High Peak by the end of March 2020. They will be split across the following five sites, where up to eight vehicles will be able to charge up at each site at any one time:

  • Ashbourne - Shawcroft car park
  • Bakewell - New Street
  • Buxton - Victoria Park Road
  • Glossop - Edward Street
  • Matlock - Edgefold Road

The scheme, delivered by the Energy Saving Trust, is being funded by the UK government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and the charging point provider BP Chargemaster. Over £200,000 was secured. Derbyshire county council intends to bid for additional funding so that electric vehicle charging points can be introduced in other parts of Derbyshire.
