Free parking for EV owners in Milton Keynes

Date: 11 July 2016   |   Author: Daniel Puddicombe

Electric vehicle owners in Milton Keynes are now able to park for free in 15,000 parking spaces in an attempt to increase the uptake of EVs.

Earlier this year the city - along with Bristol, London, Nottingham Dundee, Newcastle, York and Oxford - received a share of £40m funding from the Government under the Go Ultra Low Cities banner to encourage drivers to switch to EVs.

"It is great to see the first part of Milton Keynes' Go Ultra Low City plan become a reality. Thanks to the £9 million of funding we have provided, thousands of local residents will now be able to park their electric cars for free. This grant will also help to create an 'electric vehicle experience centre' in the city and open up bus lanes to electric car drivers," said transport minister Andrew Jones. "We are investing £600 million in cleaner, greener vehicles by 2020 to improve air quality, create jobs and achieve our goal of every car and van in the UK being zero emission by 2050."
