Electric car charging forecourt proposed for Bramley


Plans for the first ‘electric forecourt’ in Yorkshire designed to charge electric vehicles has been submitted in Bramley.

Developers have submitted proposals to transform Diamond House and the adjacent car sales area in Henconner Lane into a series of electric vehicle charging stations, new access, car parking and landscaping.

Existing buildings on the site would be demolished and replaced by new hub building, which will include ancillary uses including retail and food and drink.

A planning statement accompanying Gridserve’s application states: “The site has been selected as the first site in Yorkshire and will serve both passing traffic, local residents and businesses.

“In particular, the facility will make it possible for people living in flats and terrace housing without charging points to own and operate an electric vehicle. It will help to respond t the 2035 ban on the sale of new petrol/diesel engines.”

The development will create nine new jobs.

The proposals can be viewed in full here.
