Park up, plug in and go!
There are over 200 electric vehicle charge points installed across MK including standard/fast charge points and rapid charge point. These charging points are publicly available and located throughout the borough, with a significant concentration in Central Milton Keynes. Take a look at our interactive map to see the locations.
All of the charge points are managed by the Council’s partner, Chargemaster. You can join the national POLAR scheme operated by Chargemaster which will allow you to use the charge points in Milton Keynes. You can also pay as you go. For details of the locations of charge points and charges applicable visit the Chargemaster website.
All rapid chargers (currently available for 2 hours only) and electric vehicle spaces with ‘Electric Vehicle Charging Only‘ marked on the signage, can only be used by electric vehicles that are plugged in and charging. Electric vehicle motorists do not need to pay to park if parking in these spaces whilst they are plugged in and charging.
