A survey has been launched to gain a greater understanding of people’s views on electric vehicles (EVs) in North East Lincolnshire and to identify possible future trends.
The survey by North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner ENGIE, and backed by transport officials, is vital in the continued development of an EV strategy for the area.
It will also help to support evidence of EV demand in the future for funding bids that will allow funding to be secured to bring more infrastructure into the area.
Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “We have always been committed to the EV agenda and working with ENGIE. We are embracing our role in supporting the change to EV and ultra-low emission vehicles.
“To support us in securing funding for the area, it is essential residents share their views with us and allow us to use the information to showcase how we will all support the EV agenda locally and allow us to develop our EV infrastructure in the coming years.
“It is a priority of mine to bring more EV charging points to the area for residents, businesses and visitors. Accessing Government funding streams is the best way for this to be delivered.
“The survey will only take a few minutes to complete and will really help to shape the future of EV in North East Lincolnshire.”
