Charging points for electric cars have been installed in Haverfordwest’s multi storey car park and the car park in County Hall.

Drivers will be able to purchase a £5 swipe card from County Hall and use this to access the points and charge up their cars for free.

Cllr Rob Lewis, cabinet spokesman for highways and planning, told full council how the Welsh Government funded points were installed last week and will be launched properly at the end of the month.

Cllr Lewis said that the charging points would be in place for a trial period which would assess take up and demand.

He said that there was a possibility of asking the Welsh Government to expand the scheme throughout the county if take up was high.
