Bosses at McDonalds in Butt Lane have applied to install two electric vehicle charging bays in the restaurant car park.
The proposals, in two parking bays at the front of the building, also include associated equipment. A design statement submitted with the planning application by suppliers Instavolt says:
“The two proposed Electric Vehicle charging units at McDonald’s, Bramley will provide essential infrastructure for the area and will utilise the latest DC rapid charging technology which is accessible for all EV drivers to use.
“Countries across the world are making a move away from fossil fuels and towards the electrification of the transport system and the UK has binding climate agreements to reduce the levels of CO2 emissions. With the planned increase in electric vehicle usage the infrastructure must be implemented at a larger scale.”
