Electric vehicle charging post for Station Road car park?

Charging point in Margaret Street
Hopefully we'll soon see a couple of these charging points installed in the Station Road car park (behind Argos and Wilkinsons) to support the growth of electric vehicles in the city.

While take up hasn't been exactly dramatic so far, there is certainly a place for electric cars in our future - they are ideal for so many routine journeys, but range remains a problem.

If you'd like an overview of models currently available, then this site is well worth a look. Some models attract up to £5000 in grant support from the government under a scheme set out by Labour and fortunately continued by this coalition, but that still makes them rather expensive.

As always, if you have views, let me know.
