Electric vehicle charging points

We are developing a network of public electric vehicle charging points, to encourage the use of electric vehicles in the Bradford District.

The network will enable drivers within the district or visiting the area to recharge in our town centres, helping encourage the uptake of electric vehicles.

Low emissions vehicles, such as electric cars will assist with the Council’s aim to cut air pollution and CO2 emissions from road transport as they emit zero exhaust emissions. They also help cut noise pollution as they are quieter to run.

Funding for the charge points was made available from the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV).

Charge points locations 

Blink EB-Go! Fast charging points

LEVI Funding 

Bradford Council has been allocated Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (LEVI) funding, this is West Yorkshire wide project. The aim is to provide electric vehicle charging points in residential areas where off street parking is limited.  This project will help residents unable to have a home charging point due to not having a driveway or garage transition to electric vehicles.  

For more information visit Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure for West Yorkshire (LEVI) | Your Voice (westyorks-ca.gov.uk)


Buying an electric vehicle

If you are interested in electric or low emission vehicles and want to compare vehicles visit the Next Green Car website.

For information on government grants such as the home charging or plug-in vehicle scheme visit the Office for Low Emission Vehicles website.

Suggest a charge point location 

Demand for charge points is increasing, particularly from residents wishing to purchase an electric vehicle but do not have their own off street parking to charge up at home.  

To assist the council to understand where the demand for electric vehicle charge points currently is within our district, please complete the survey to suggestion a location. Your suggestions will help support council funding bids and shape decisions on future locations. By submitting a location it does not guarantee an charge point will be installed.
