Phase one of proposed on-street electric vehicle charging provision for West Sussex

Proposed locations in phase one of the on-street electric vehicle (EV) chargepoint rollout in West Sussex have been revealed.

A leaflet has been distributed to residents and businesses near the sites in 78 locations across the county, inviting feedback on the proposed locations and giving the opportunity to ask questions or share comments.

This is the first phase in the largest-roll out of electric vehicle chargepoints by a UK council, with subsequent phases taking place over the next decade, making it easier for electric vehicle (EV) users without driveways in West Sussex to charge their vehicles.

West Sussex County Council, Adur and Worthing Councils, Arun District Council, Crawley Borough Council, Horsham District Council and Mid Sussex District Council have signed a contract with Connected Kerb, one of the country’s leading providers of EV charging solutions to install and maintain thousands of new chargepoints across the county.

The project is fully funded by Connected Kerb, meaning zero cost to the councils, and will be particularly beneficial to EV users without off-street parking. We will soon be engaging with residents who live near the proposed locations.


Residents can help us plan a network that works for them by sharing their views of where more chargepoints should be located across West Sussex.

Whilst we cannot guarantee that a chargepoint will be installed in the location suggested, it will help us see where there is demand and plan for future EV charging in the county.To suggest a location, or to find out more about our plans, please visit the Connected Kerb website:

Some frequently asked questions:Will there be enough chargepoints for everyone?There are plans to roll out a charging network in sufficient numbers which will help you make the switch to electric vehicles with confidence. The aim is to have a chargepoint within a few minutes of residents that do not have access to off-street parking.

Who is funding installation and maintenance of the chargepoints?The contract with Connected Kerb is a 100 per cent concession contract, meaning that West Sussex County Council and other partners are not required to contribute any funding towards this project.

What energy will be used to power the chargepoints?Renewable energy sources primarily from wind, solar and hydro (water) sources will power 100 per cent green electricity supplied by Octopus Energy.

How do I find a chargepoint once they are installed?You can download the Connected Kerb app via the Appstore or Google Play to locate chargepoints near you. You can also find them on Zap-Map ( by using the network filter.

What parking restrictions will apply to the EV bays?Only electric vehicles that are charging can use the dedicated EV charging bays. Within a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ), CPZ restrictions will also apply during the hours of the CPZ operation, i.e., a permit will need to be displayed in the bays, during the CPZ operation hours.
