House builders Crossman Homes is installing electric car charging points at five of its recent developments and has committed to integrating them in all future schemes. The company will be installing charging points at its developments at Weston Park and at Lansdown Court in Lansdown in Bath and at Speedwell Baths, Master’s Church and in Totterdown in Bristol.
Brad Hughes, Crossman Homes, says: “As responsible developers it is our duty to ensure we’ve future proofed our developments and made provision for our home owners to make greener choices when it comes to transport and travelling, and often this starts at home. We’ll be installing electric car charging points at all of our developments in the future.
“Electric car ownership is growing in popularity and will soon be much more accessible to many more drivers so anything we can do to make owning and charging these vehicles easier can only be a good thing. Only recently we replaced our company maintenance van with an electric one so we understand how vital it is to have access to charging points.”
Figures published by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show a dramatic rise in electric car sales in the UK. Registrations increased to an average of 5,000 per month in 2018.
