Whats is really needed is more 2 bedroom houses that are not sold to buy to let landlords, the development SHOULD insist on a minimum 100 2 bedroom homes for Owner Occupiers.
Im not a hater I like to support the Council its great that they are installing some chargers that will encourage residents to move to EV cars, but for over 5 months I have been emailing & tweeting Wrexham Council asking what charging speed they will use, but they will not listen or reply. The whole point of charging outside the home, is that its quicker to charge than at home. Home charging is mainly 7kW sometimes 14kW, so the minimum Wrexham Council should have gone for is 14kW.
This is me Advising the council for the remaining chargers they have not installed yet NOT a hater.
The main reasons people charge away from home
1. you cannot charge at home, (no drive or flat)
2. your on a long journey & need to add charge.
3. home charging is slow speed charging & forgot to charge over night.
Even the new EV charging points coming to most Tesco’s are 7kW for free but have the option to pay for 50kW, not that will give you a proper charge on 30 minutes than this 7kW will give you in 4 hours.
Wrexham council going for the cheap choice again. 14kW for the others in waterworks PLEASE. But they won’t listen, Wrexham council never do.
Unfortunately it’s the very very slow 7kW charging. They should have gone with 14kW as a minimum.
Looks like you have to top up credit to your account to be able to use their charging stations, not a good solution for Wrexham Council to use, this means having several accounts that you have to keep topped up just in case. Why just not use a company that just has an option to use your Contactless card with out topping up.
Many thanks, it’s terrible that Wrexham Council did not go with a company that also let’s you just use your contact less unless these new units do?
I really hate that you need 4 or 5 apps to charge in the UK. All need option of just using contactless card even if it’s a bit cheaper with an app or subscription.
Will Wrexham Council make a condition of planning permission, that for the first month of homes going on sale (especially on 2 bedroom houses) that they are for owner Occupiers only not for Property developers to rent out, at least for the first month of sale.
Virtually every 2 bedroom house that goes on sale is snapped up for Rent, not giving anyone a change to get on the property ladder.
Such a shame as there will now be no store near by since Chester & Oswestry closed. Wonder if its the property owner not reducing the rent enough, now will not receive anything with empty premises or is it Homebase asking for an un-realistic drop in rent??
Still a shame & now less choice.
Yes Council tax should be increased but for Social care but by only £2 a month for band C or higher. Its a little amount that would add up.
