Electric Vehicle Charging Points 

Bath and North East Somerset district has around 40 public charging sockets, including at the Bath park and rides and Charlotte St car park. All chargers are shown on Zap Map. During 2019-2020, the Council will install around 20 more charging sockets in car parks through the Go Ultra Low West programme. This includes Rapid Charging Hubs in Bath, Keynsham and Midsomer Norton/ Radstock. The rapid chargers can charge up to 80% in as little as 30 minutes and will serve the public including taxis, business vehicles and residents unable to charge at home. The Council also offers large discounts on parking permits for electric vehicles (see below).

To use the electric charger points you will need to sign up to the scheme

Zero Emissions Vehicle Discount for Permits

On 1st April 2019 we introduced a scheme to reduce the cost of permits for zero emission vehicles. Discounts are available across a range of permits types; they are limited in numbers and offered on a first come first served basis. They will be available each year for the next 3 years.  

If your vehicle meets the emission criteria, you will be automatically offered the discount when you apply for the permit online using MiPermit.

Please note, due to the verification process, you are not permitted to change the vehicle registered against this permit.  If you require a permit that can be used with more than one vehicle, you must purchase the permit at the regular cost.  The terms and conditions for each permit type still apply. The discount does not apply to permits purchased prior to the 1st April 2019.

The reduced permit charges are detailed in the table below:
