Rapid EV charging point plans submitted for Wrexham retail park
New rapid electric vehicle charging points could soon be installed at a Wrexham retail park.
InstaVolt, described as the UK’s largest open public charging network, has put forward plans for six new charging bays at Border Retail Park, on Holt Road.
The retail park is currently home to a drive-thru Burger King, B&M Bargains, Wickes and Jollyes Pet Shop.
As part of the proposals there would be a loss of nine existing spaces in the car park.
The plans include the removal of a set of speed bumps to “allow for unrestricted access to EV charging bays.”
Existing hatchings and bollards along the nine spaces will also be removed to allow for the installation of the chargers.
Plans show that at the opposite end of the car park a section of the kerb will be lowered to allow for 24/7 access to the substation.
In the application, the company states: “The existing area is currently allocated to customers for the use of Wrexham Border Retail Park.
“However this area of the car park is due to be redeveloped by our client under a separate planning application.”
The application will be considered for approval by Wrexham Council at a later date.
