Dorset Council Discusses E-Vehicle Charging For Drivers Without Driveways

Dorset councillor Carole Jones raised charging provision for residents without driveways in a council meeting last week.

Carole has heard reports that electric vehicle owners outside Dorset have been stretching cables from their homes and across pavements to charge their cars. She was told cable-stretching won’t be permitted in the Dorset Council area.

We spoke with electric vehicle owner and expert Ed Bersey of Planet Shaftesbury. Ed says technology is advancing rapidly and new options are emerging.
