Politicians who are concerned about climate change are constantly telling us we need to change to electric vehicles for which we would need to access charge points.

There are thousands of homes in Maldon that do not have room for a home chargepoint. I would gladly change, but like others I’m not going to if I can’t charge the car. I wrote to both MDC and Essex county council nearly two years ago but got no commitment whatsoever to rectify this. I believe Maldon/Heybridge has only two charge points for public use and only one of them is deemed fast.

Many people think that a climate crisis will not be happening soon. Ask the Californians about that.
