Norwich City on-street chargepoint project

Norfolk County Council are currently progressing a rollout of electric vehicle chargepoints in Norwich. The chargepoints will be available to all members of the public.

Overview

The project will help everyone access charging infrastructure, particularly those residents who do not have off-street parking. It is the first scheme of its kind in the county. The project is a crucial step in enabling the transition to electric vehicles by providing infrastructure for present and future demand.

Our chosen contractor is Blink (formerly EB Charging). Installation and ongoing maintenance of the charge points, and associated assets, will be funded and carried out by Blink. We are working closely with Blink to deliver the scheme and provide a solution that is appropriate for now but also fit for the future. We will be taking on board valued feedback from members of the public and key stakeholders.

Most of the chargepoints will be in the 7 to 22kW range. A small number will be rapid chargepoints.

Planned phases

Some streets may have more than one chargepoint. The first phase of works has been completed and future planned phase dates and durations are as follows:

  • Phase 1: Installations complete, due to powered up and ready to use in the coming weeks.
  • Phase 2: Updated dates and duration times for each location can be found below.
  • Phases 3 and 4: Planned to run consecutively, starting immediately after the end of Phase 2, dates and durations to be confirmed.

Further sites are currently being redesigned and information on these will be made available once proposals are ready.

Restrictions are expected on some footways, requiring diversion of footway users, and some parking bays will also be temporarily suspended due to the works.

We will try to ensure the impact to footway users, and those living on these streets, is minimised. Although restrictions will cover the full duration of each phase, they will only be in force when signage is shown on site.
