Electric vehicle chargepoints go live

EV Chargepoints Now Here graphicProviding access to EV charging for those without driveways or the ability to install their own charger is vital to ensuring the UK is ready for the 2030 ban on new sales of petrol and diesel vehicles.

New Connected Kerb electric vehicle charging points are now live in our car parks at:

- Vicarage Road and Norton House Car Parks in East Grinstead
- Franklynn Road and Hazelgrove Car Parks in Haywards Heath
- Orion Car Park in Hassocks
- Denmans Lane Car Park in Lindfield
- Trinity Road Car Park in Hurstpierpoint
- Station Road in Burgess Hill

This initial rollout is just the start of a much bigger project that will see thousands of EV Chargers rolled out across West Sussex over the next 10 years.

West Sussex County Council has submitted a reserved matters planning application to create an ‘all-through’ primary and secondary school as part of the Burgess Hill Brookleigh development (formerly known as the Northern Arc).

The school will be fully inclusive and include a Special Support Centre to support children with special educational needs and disabilities attending the new school.

The University of Brighton Academies Trust has been appointed to run the new all-through school. West Sussex County Council is creating the secondary school element and the primary school element, which will be designed and built later, is being created by Homes England.

The design of the new secondary school building aims to achieve Passivhaus certification, which sets the standard for low-carbon emissions, use of sustainable energy, and helping to reduce the impact of climate change. The building will be highly energy efficient and generate its own energy on-site using nearly 1000 solar photovoltaic panels, ensuring no use of fossil fuels in the running of the building.

The scheme has been designed to protect, conserve and enhance the rich biodiversity found on the site, and you can view the proposed design of the school at https://youtu.be/zSeonaHiXFs
