Electric charging points have been installed at Swindon Borough Council's civic campus.

Four new bays are now available for members of the public and council staff to charge their electric vehicles.

The new charging points are part of the council's plan for Swindon make a lasting contribution to helping the UK meet its target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and are in keeping with improving the town's infrastructure to support a growing, low carbon economy.

The points are available at two locations, one by the steps to the offices and the other at the side of Wat Tyler House.

Mayor of Swindon, Kevin Parry, who drives an electric Hyundai, said: "I am thrilled to be able to say that, by installing these charging bays at the civic and pursuing policies that require developers to install charging points in new builds, we are making excellent progress in pushing electric cars as an alternative to petrol and diesel.

"We know that switching to electric vehicles is a massive change for people and we want to make it easy for them to own and run these sorts of cars, and these new charging points are a brilliant way of achieving that."

Both charging points are dual 22kW, meaning four vehicles can be charged at once.
