You may have seen the article, pictured left, in the Summer edition of Durham County News recently.
Durham County Council has a small pot of money available during the trial period to help get the project off the ground and support a number of early installations. The install cost of the gully is £600, and Durham County Council are covering 50% of this, so a cost of £300 to the resident. Just to be clear it covers the groundworks and Kerbo Charge product only, the EV charger would need to be purchased by the home owner.
Durham County Council highways team need to asses each location to determine the suitability for a gully (pavement size, parking restrictions, obstructions etc.). The fitment of the gully also does not guarantee the resident that parking spot, so Durham County Council do recommend talking to neighbours etc. to ensure you can access the gully for charging when required.
