Electric cars: Town should be charging ahead

We are the proud owners of a fully electric Nissan Leaf car. This happens to be the future: electric car ownership is increasing very fast as new and better models come on to the market and charging points are installed across the country to match.

Much as we love Scarborough we tend to go to Bridlington for day trips since they have a charging point there. Tourism is not the whole story. As soon as there is a fast charging point in Scarborough people in the town will see the huge financial and other benefits of these amazing cars, to the benefit of everyone.

Is it not time for Scarborough to catch up with the times?
