Electric vehicle charging points

Lancaster City Council is committed to helping people to convert to zero emission vehicles, reducing transport related emissions and promoting more sustainable forms of transport. We have also committed to reducing air pollution and the council’s impact on climate change.

This includes increasing the efficiency of buildings, replacing our vehicle fleet with electric and/or hydrogen powered vehicles and switching to 100% fossil-fuel-free energy. A key element to achieving these aims is creating new infrastructure to make it easier for people to use electric vehicles. With no tailpipe emissions, electric vehicles make a significant contribution to improving air quality.

On this page you will find a list of charging points that have been installed by the council in Lancaster and Morecambe.

The council is providing free electricity, but you will need to pay any parking charges that are applicable. A connection fee to the network provider, Polar, is also required and you can sign-up and find out more information on their website at Polar-network.com.

If the charge-points become faulty or are damaged you should report this directly to Polar by telephoning 0330 016 5126 or emailing info@polarnetwork.com. In an emergency telephone the city council on 01524 67099.
