Bath-based housebuilder Crossman Homes has said it will be installing charging points at all its future developments, in a bid to future-proof the properties and allow homeowners to make greener choices.
The company is working to install electric car charging points at two of its recent developments and has committed to integrating them in all their future schemes.
Crossman Homes will be installing charging points at its ongoing developments at Weston Park and at Lansdown Court in Lansdown.
Brad Hughes, from Crossman Homes, said: “As responsible developers it is our duty to ensure we’ve future proofed our developments and made provision for our home owners to make greener choices when it comes to transport and travelling, and often this starts at home.
“We’ll be installing electric car charging points at all of our developments in the future.
“Electric car ownership is growing in popularity and will soon be much more accessible to many more drivers so anything we can do to make owning and charging these vehicles easier can only be a good thing.
“Only recently we replaced our company maintenance van with an electric one so we understand how vital it is to have access to charging points.”
The announcement follows the publication of figures by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), which showed an average increase of electric car registrations of 5,000 per month in 2018.
