Where can I charge my electric vehicle in an East Riding Council-run car park?
The council has installed electric vehicle charging points at the following locations:
Palace car park, Quay Road, Bridlington, YO15 3AA
Swinegate car park, Swinegate, Hessle, HU13 9LH
Cross Hill car park, Mill Street, Driffield YO25 6RQ
West Green car park, West Green, Pocklington YO42 2NJ
East Riding Leisure Withernsea car park, Station Road, Withernsea HU19 2QA
Burlington Crescent car park, Burlington Crescent, Goole DN14 5RE
Hornsea Hub car park, Broadway, Hornsea HU18 1PZ
George Street car park, George Street, Beverley, HU17 0AP
Trinity Lane car park, Trinity Lane, Beverley, HU17 0AU
Spencer Street car park, Spencer Street, Beverley, HU17 9EA
Grayburn Lane car park, Grayburn Lane, Beverley, HU17 8JR
North Street car park, North Street, Bridlington, YO15 2DY
Iveson Close car park, Iveson Close, Hedon, HU12 8ES
King Street car park, King Street, Cottingham, HU16 5QQ
Hailgate car park, Hailgate, Howden, DN14 7SZ.
These points were paid for through the Local Transport Plan.
A financial contribution towards the Bridlington and Hessle vehicle charging points came from the two town councils.
How do I charge my electric vehicle?
The current charge points are untethered, type 2, single phase, twin socket, 7.4kw charge points, so you will require your own compatible cable in order to charge your car.
The exception to this is the Rapid Charge Point at Hailgate car park, Howden, which is a tethered unit owned and operated by BP Chargemaster on behalf of Highways England. This unit has the following connectors: DC Combo Type 2 50kw, CHAdeMO 50kw, Type 2 socket 43kw.
None of the council-provided charge points provide contactless payment facilities, and therefore you should refer to their individual websites as to how to operate their equipment and find out what payment options/methods are available.
EV drivers can access the Highways England Rapid Charger at Hailgate car park, Howden by the following methods:
How much does it cost?
The council has introduced a tariff for all its electric vehicle chargers. The cost has been set in line with the national average at £0.48 per kWh. Tariffs may change in line with summer and winter energy prices.
Roaming charges apply to non-Hubsta network members. Full details of charges are shown on the Hubsta app. The Highways England Rapid Charger at Hailgate Car Park, Howden costs 35p per kWh.
Those who are actively charging their vehicle do not have to Pay and Display. This is because the council does not currently apply parking charges, or time limit overstay charges to vehicles which are plugged in and taking on electric charge. This waiver applies to actively charging vehicles in council-owned car parks where parking fees apply.
Vehicles should be parked completely within the electric vehicle recharging bay. If vehicles are parked outside these bays, or are not actively charging, then a Penalty Charge Notice may be issued by Civil Parking Enforcement.
Who should I report problems with charging points to?
How do I find other charging points outside the East Riding?
Are any more charging points planned?
The council are currently reviewing the use and performance of the charging points already installed before deciding whether to introduce additional facilities at other council-operated car parks in the East Riding.
What incentives or information is available for individuals and organisations?
Further information may be obtained from the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles, who provide guidance and regulation as well as information on any financial support that is available:
