Green light for vehicle charging bays at Owlcotes Centre

Retailer Marks & Spencer has been granted planning permission to install eight electric vehicle charging bays at its Owlcotes Centre store.

Proposals approved by Leeds City Council planners this week include a substation enclosure and associated electrical equipment.

A planning statement submitted to the council by Marks & Spencer states: “The development is a key part of the move to a cleaner energy mix, and should be embraced by the local authority in these terms.”

It argues the proposals are entirely consistent with the site’s established land use as a car park.The plans can be viewed here.

WLD reported in March that the council was installing 24 new plug-in vehicle fast charging bays in West Leeds.
