Electric Vehicle (EV) Chargers

Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

EV Charger 2 - crop

BCP Council has launched a new network of rapid Electric Vehicle Charging Points (EVCPs) to replace our previous network. The points are maintained by Joju Charging and back-office functions are provided by Mer. 

They can charge your car within 40 minutes and cost 72p per Kwh – you can pay via the Mer app or contactless bank card. Mer registered users can charge their car for 69p per Kwh. The first phase has already been completed and are in the following locations:


  • Old Orchard (on-street)
  • Seldown Lane (on-street)
  • Municipal Road (on-street)
  • Jubilee Road Car Park
  • Bournemouth University (Talbot Campus)


  • Westbourne, Seamoor Road (on-street)
  • Pound Lane Car Park
  • Richmond Gardens MSCP
  • Madeira Road MSCP
  • Christchurch Road (on-street)
  • Hawkwood Road Car Park


  • Christchurch, Saxon Square MSCP

We are in the process of expanding our network to more BCP car parks. We plan to install chargers in the following locations in the first phase (2022/3). This list may be subject to change.
