Partners are providing charging bays throughout Devon

By December 2022, over 400 publicly-accessible charging bays are expected to be installed

On Street Charging Bays

Up to 150 publicly accessible on-street charging bays are being installed through the Rapid Charging Devon project, funded by Innovate UK. In addition, there will be 17 charging bays dedicated for shared car-club vehicles. These provide a mix of rapid charging – which will provide most electric vehicles with an 80% charge within 30 minutes – and fast charging.

Off Street Charging Bays

Exeter City Council has 14 charging bays across six sites in the city, and Plymouth City Council has 42 bays across 14 car parks which are accompanied by a further 14 bays provided by Plymouth Community Healthcare and Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust.

Mid Devon District Council has installed eight charging bays across its three leisure centres in the district and the multi-storey car park in Tiverton.

Torridge District Council offers four active bays across its public car parks.  

In 2020, Devon County Council, Teignbridge District Council and South Hams District Council  installed three cutting-edge ‘rapid’ charge points at Chudleigh Library car park, Buckfastleigh’s Mardle Way car park and at Ivybridge’s Glanvilles Mill car park. These were funded by Highways England and provide six charging bays in total.

Dartmoor National Park Authority has installed two fast charging bays at the Haytor Visitor Centre.

In the first phase of a Devon-wide collaboration, up to 80 charging bays are being installed through the joint-EU funded DELETTI project. These charging bays will be in public-sector car parks across Devon and expect to be complete by May 2022. In the second phase, a further 70 charging bays are expected to be installed by December 2022.
