DDC – Electric Vehicle – Residents’ Survey

You may have seen our recent press article relating to an online survey regarding electric vehicle charging points. See article here.

We are seeking information on the number of electric vehicle (EV) drivers in the district and those who are considering an EV in the future. This will help us to identify the local demand and take advantage of a government grant available for local authorities to provide on-street EV charging solutions.

We would like to encourage your parish councillors and residents to complete this survey  before the deadline of Friday 22 June.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Joely Slinn
Environmental Improvement Officer
Daventry District Council
