Electric Vehicle Charging

Friday 24th May - George Yard Car Park in Andover and Lortemore Place Car Park in Romsey Electric Charging Points are currently out of order for maintenance and should be up and running again within two weeks. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Eighteen electric vehicle charging points part funded by a Government grant from the Office of Low Emission Vehicles were installed in various Test Valley Borough Council car parks across Andover and Romsey at the end of 2019. Information stickers on these machines informs customers of how to pay for their energy.

The 18 fast charging points in the Borough’s car parks in Andover and Romsey, are each capable of supplying 22kW of charge. There is a 24-7 helpline telephone number on the signage at all the locations in case of any issues or difficulties with using the charging points or APP.

The two rapid charging points at Romsey Rapids car park have been in place since 2016 remain in situ, but operate under a different payment system. Signage at the Rapids charge points advises motorists how to pay for the energy there.

All of the EV charge points are powered by 100 per cent renewable energy.

Please note, motorists are required to make payment to park as well as to charge, during car park charging hours. Details of the car park charges and charging times can be found on the tariff boards in all car parks.

Maps for Andover and Romsey with the available charge points are available to download from this page.

Details on the location of other publicly available EV charge points can be found via zapmap.

Hampshire County Council has a survey available via their website to tell them where you would like to see on-street EV charging facilities. This will help them understand where the demand is greatest to inform their emerging EV Strategy.
