Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure specialist Zest has announced a partnership with Ryedale District Council, in North Yorkshire, where it will provide ten rapid (DC) charge points to serve its five market towns.
The District Council which oversees the market towns of Helmsley, Kirkbymoorside, Malton, Norton, and Pickering, secured investment from Zest to provide chargers to its citizens and visitors.
The bid to bring in rapid chargers to Ryedale shows a commitment to the climate change actions set out in the Council Plan.
The rapid chargers mean it will take less time for users to charge up as they go about their day.
The chargers will be fitted in the new year, at several locations, including:
• Water Lane, Malton
• Eastgate, Pickering
• Vivis Lane, Pickering
• Ropery, Pickering
• Cleveland Way, Helmsley
• St Nicholas Street, Norton-on- Derwent
Phillip Spurr, Director for Place and Resources for Ryedale District Council said: “In our Council Plan, we made a commitment to promote sustainable transport by installing extra electric vehicle charging points. We already have charge points in eight locations across Ryedale and rapid charging at Water Lane car park, Malton, and at our St. Nicholas Street car park, in Norton.
“What’s more, we have two electric pool cars for our employees, enhancing our commitment to sustainable transport further.”
