Last year, West Sussex County Council (WSCC) asked residents what would help them make the switch to electric vehicles.

The survey showed that lack of public charging points and range anxiety were significant factors discouraging people from switching. WSCC has taken into account those results and has produced a draft Electric Vehicle (EV) Strategy, which is now open for public consultation until Tuesday 1 October.

Residents, businesses and commuters into the county are being asked 16 questions to see if the strategy will help address the initial barriers and give individuals the confidence to switch to EV’s.

Early investment in infrastructure to support the transition from petrol and diesel vehicles to alternative fuels is critical. Long-term it will also help improve air quality and reduce carbon emissions across the county.

With electric vehicles looking to be similar price wise to conventional vehicles in the UK as early as 2021, WSCC wants the public’s view on its draft strategy so they can make sure it’s fit for purpose. Whether you currently own or drive an electric vehicle, are considering buying one in the future, or even if you have no plans to switch, they would like to hear from you.

All consultation responses will help shape the final Electric Vehicle Strategy. You can take part by visiting the Have Your Say Consultation Hub on the WSCC website.
