This workshop regarding the provision of on-street EV charge points was developed due to demand from our local authority members in West Sussex and Surrey. As other authorities are grappling with the same issues, we have brought together two trainers: Ross Jones from the Infrastructure Team at OLEV and Hayley Chivers, Strategic Transport Planner at Portsmouth City Council. The workshop will be held on Tuesday 5 December 2017 from 1:30 - 3:30 pm in Portsmouth, followed by the South East regional meeting (3:45 pm) and pub social (5:30 pm). Registration is now open.
