Electric vehicle charging points

Rapid electric vehicle charging technology – which enables a car to be charged in just 30 minutes – is now available at Sutton Park as a legacy benefit of the site being a Birmingham 2022 venue.

The charging points have been installed at the car park at Boldmere Gate, upgraded and fitted out with new power infrastructure as part of a £1million investment.
In total, ten charging bays have been provided through the scheme.

As well as the four 50kw rapid chargers, there are a further three 22kw fast chargers that each have two charge points (serving two vehicles at a time) – which can fully charge a vehicle in between two and four hours (dependent on the vehicle’s battery).

The charge points can be used either as a pay-as-you-go or through monthly membership and are available during standard park opening hours.

Cllr Liz Clements, Cabinet Member for Transport at Birmingham City Council, said: “Electric vehicles are becoming more common so it is vital we get charging points installed at locations in all parts of Birmingham.”
