The rollout of a publicly owned and managed EV infrastructure to support increased demand has faced some challenges that we continue to learn from. The costs of upgrading power to support the EV chargers together with identifying suitable land and car parks that the council own are the main prohibitors for extending the rollout beyond the current phases.
Trafford is therefore, as part of the continuation of the project looking at trials of on street charging solutions funded by LEVI and CRSTS grant funding opportunities as contained in this report.
Recognition of gaps in infrastructure in some of the wards in Trafford will remain a priority to ensure there is a fair distribution of available infrastructure across the Borough taking account of the power restrictions we currently face.
