Promoting a sustainable environment

Our vision seeks to incorporate policies that reduce our carbon footprint by using renewable sources of energy and supporting the move from petrol/diesel vehicles to electric vehicles.

As more people opt for electric vehicles, the destinations they choose will be influenced by the availability of charging points, so we recognise the importance of installing charging points in our district to attract more visitors.

We’ve signed up to the Electric Vehicle Strategy 2019 to 2030, developed by West Sussex County Council (WSCC), which will allow us to install electric vehicle charge points on our land, including car parks.

Working in partnership with WSCC, the charging points will be powered by renewable energy from one supplier and run on the same network across the county.

Except for Fitzleet multi-storey car park, all the pay and display machines in our car parks operate by using solar power and we are actively looking at other ways of using renewable energy within our car parks.
