Electric Vehicle Charging Points

Working in partnership with Kent County Council, we have installed two free-to-use fast charging points in Tunbridge Wells. Each point can charge up two cars at the same time.

You will need to be registered with Charge Your Car (CYC) and use cables compatible with a 7kW fast charger to use the charging points, there are no cables provided on site.

The charging points are located in marked bays within:

Please note: The bays can only be used for a maximum of four hours and normal parking charges apply.

The locations of these and other units are available on the Charge Your Car website.
