Electric car charging points installed in Malton and Norton

Drivers in Ryedale can now recharge their electric vehicles (EVs) in as little as 30 minutes after two new rapid chargers are installed in Malton and Norton-on-Derwent.

Highways England has invested more than £80,000 to install two rapid chargers, unveiled in the car parks at Water Lane, Malton and St Nicholas Street, Norton-on-Derwent, close to the shops in both towns.

The rapid chargers can substantially recharge the battery of an EV in just 30 minutes. These units are aimed at supporting drivers of electric vehicles on their journeys, being able to park whilst their vehicle charges, giving them time to pop to the shops and get a bite to eat.

They will only have to pay for the amount of electricity they purchase and will be able to pay via contactless card or use their existing Polar network account.

Specific electric vehicle bays are marked next to the points that can only be used while charging is in progress.

Beckie Bennett, Delivery and Frontline Services Lead at Ryedale District Council, said: “We are delighted to have worked with Highways England on this project and that Ryedale’s application to install two of these new rapid chargers was successful.

“It means that EV owners can now drive into either Malton or Norton town centres, go for a coffee or a meal, or a quick visit to the shops and return to find their electric vehicle recharged and ready to go, even if they’ve visited from more than 100 miles away.

“By working with our partners, the Council is supporting our communities and local businesses in making choices that are not only better for them both financially and environmentally, but which are also better for the wider economy and public health.”
