Electric Vehicle Charging Points in the Lion Meadow and car park
In partnership with Midlands Cooperative, Shropshire Council and Stretton Town Council we’ve arranged the installation of Electric Vehicle charging points in the Lion Meadow and Easthope car parks. This encourages visitors to come to Church Stretton in their electric vehicles, secure in the knowledge that they will be able continue their journeys, and encourages sustainable tourism. To date, the first charge point has been used over 1,700 times and has saved over 11 tonnes of CO2. We continue to support the development of further charge points elsewhere.
Electric Car Shows
Screen Shot 2015-12-01 at 12.34.25By popular demand, we’ve held a series of Electric Car Shows in Church Stretton. This encourages the take up of these low emission vehicles. We have provided free demonstration rides to those attending and the take up of electric vehicles in Church Stretton has been encouraging. We encourage all forms of low carbon transport – walking, cycling and public transport. We will consider whether to develop car sharing schemes to further reduce car use – one of the major sources of carbon emissions especially in a rural area like ours. Keep an eye on the website for the date of our next Electric Vehicle Day, which will be arranged as soon as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.

Further to my enquiry earlier this month, regarding the Green Homes Grant Scheme, I want to thank you for your help, and also to let you know I have contacted Shropshire Green Energy Centre in Telford, and they have registered my application for the above Grant Scheme, and will contact me when a survey date and time is available.
