Electric Vehicle Charging Points in Car Parks

Locations of West Berkshire owned charging points for electrical vehicles

The Newbury Kennet Centre Multi-Storey Car Park has one electric vehicle charging socket available to the public.

This is located at the top of the 'up' ramp on the first floor. Charging for the general public is available in the left hand bay only (the right hand bay is reserved for use by Newbury Car Club vehicles).

The bay must only be used by those charging their vehicle - you'll need to pay the appropriate parking fee for the duration of your stay in addition to any fees incurred by using the charging point (see below).

Availability

The Polar Network website has a map you can use to see if the charge points are currently in use.

Using the Charging Point

In order to use the charging point, you need to be registered on the Polar Network. 
You can do this via the Polar Network website or via their smartphone app (available on Android and IoS).

You'll need to use your own cable to connect to the charge point. 

Payment

Fees for using the charging points are decided by the Polar Network - check their website for further information.

Car Club

Newbury Car Club vehicles can use the right hand bay in the Newbury Kennet Centre Multi-Storey Car Park and the dedicated bay in the Newbury Eight Bells Arcade Car Park.

There are a number of third party charging stations throughout West Berkshire, check Zap Map for the latest information.
