Recharge your electric car

Electric car recharging points are available in two of our car parks.

You must register with the Polar Network before you can use the recharging points, and you’ll need a type-2 cable.

  • If you have a monthly membership with the Polar Network, you’ll receive an RFID card to operate the recharging points.
  • If you are a pay-as-you-go Polar Network member, you can use the Polar Instant app to pay. You’ll be charged a £1.20 connection fee every time you use a recharging point.

You can recharge your vehicle for up to two hours – you must pay the usual car parking fee.

It’s your responsibility to move your vehicle to a normal parking bay after the two-hour recharging period. You might be given a penalty charge notice if you stay longer than two hours.

We cannot guarantee the availability of the charging points or the power supplied from them, and we reserve the right to remove them without prior notice.

If you have any questions or problems, contact the Polar Network helpdesk at or 0330 016 512.

We would like to thank Marshall Motor Group for their generous sponsorship, without which we would not have been able to install these electric recharging points.
