Hundreds of new electric vehicle charging points being installed across residential areas in Milton Keynes

    MK Council

    250 new residential electric vehicle charging points are planned for Milton Keynes as the city pursues a carbon negative future.

    Working with Connected Kerb and with highways partner Ringway, Milton Keynes Council has started to install the charging points in older areas of Milton Keynes, which have less off-street parking options for residents.

    250 electric charging points are planned in total, for areas in Wolverton, Stony Stratford, Newport Pagnell, Bletchley and Olney. The 100th charging point has just been installed on Westminster Drive on Bletchley.

    The new charging points can charge a car from empty to 80% in 8 hours.

    Deputy Leader of MK Council, Cllr Robin Bradburn said: "We’re working to make Milton Keynes one of the best places to own an electric vehicle and this project is a great step in the right direction.

    "Local people without off-street parking who are thinking of making the switch to electric now have more flexibility thanks to these new charging points. More electric cars on our roads helps everyone, as it makes MK greener, cleaner – and quieter.”

    Chris Pateman-Jones, CEO, Connected Kerb said: "I am delighted that Milton Keynes Council, who are a recognised pioneer in the EV sector, selected Connected Kerb for this critical EV infrastructure project which aims to boost EV uptake in Milton Keynes by improving access to charge points for residents without off-street parking.

    "Bring affordable, reliable and sustainable mobility to everyone is essential if the city and the wider UK is to reach net zero."
