National property developer, Godwin Developments, has secured leases with The EV Network and Greggs at a new drive-thru retail development in Stoke-on-Trent.
The EV Network will provide six charging bays that will be available alongside the site’s other 35 car parking spaces.
Ketan Patel, Senior Development Manager at Godwin, said: “The proportion of electric vehicles on our roads is rising – with electric vehicles now expected to account for more than one in six new cars acquired in 2021. We therefore recognise the importance of making quick and rapid EV charging points available at the site. These will provide additional facilities to consumers as well as ensure the scheme’s longevity and sustainability.”
Matthew Guest, Acquisition Manager at The EV Network, said: “The development represents a fantastic opportunity to bring ultra-fast, 300kW EV charging hardware to Stoke-on-Trent, enabling all electric vehicles to be charged in the shortest possible time. We are delighted to have worked with Godwin on this scheme and look forward to seeing the scheme in operation.”
Stuart Pratt, Director and Co-Founder at Godwin Developments, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Greggs, providing the nation’s favourite bakery chain with an opportunity to grow its market share and customer reach at this prominent high traffic location in Stoke-on-Trent. It is also fantastic to be partnering with the EV Network for this development who have been excellent throughout.”
