Electric charging points could be installed at the FirstBus depot in Bramley as the bus company prepares to introduce a fleet of eco-friendly vehicles into Leeds, writes John Baron.

The new electric charging points will charge up to 173 new electric buses, which will be used in Leeds. These buses will replace existing diesel buses, so there will not be an increase of bus parking on site.

A planning application submitted by First says the yard area will be relined and see several islands with electric vehicle charging units installed to charge the new bus fleet. 

It says the existing bus parking layout at the Henconner Lane depot will fundamentally be the same, with parking spread out so that the chargers can be located between.

The planning application submitted to Leeds City Council can be viewed in full here.
