ELECTRIC vehicle charging posts have been installed by Adur and Worthing Councils.

A number have already been installed: two in the High Street multi-storey in Worthing, two in Brooklands’ Western Road car park and two at the Pond Road car park at the Shoreham Centre.

A further two are set to be installed in Worthing Civic Centre car park.

It is the first step to an area-wide network of posts that can be added to by businesses and other organisations.

After seeing the new posts in action at Brooklands Park, lead councillors were impressed with the new technology.

Councillor Emma Evans, Adur District Council’s executive member for the environment, said: “More and more people are turning to electric cars so it’s vital as a council that we do our part.

The new posts will be open so that anyone with an electric car can plug in.
