Gosport Borough Council has partnered with Believ to support its vision to promote sustainable methods of transport, mitigate climate change, and improve air quality across the borough.

Fast and rapid charge points are being installed across seven council-owned car parks, the first two of which are already commissioned and operational at Pebble Beach car park.

Believ specialises in delivering charging infrastructure at no cost to local councils, it will own, operate and maintain the charge points, which will be delivered via its strategic delivery partner Virgin Media O2. 
“We want to encourage our residents to make environmentally friendly choices and reduce possible pollution and do so in a sustainable manner,” said Leader of the Council, Cllr Peter Chegwyn.

“Through providing publicly accessible EV infrastructure, we will promote sustainable lifestyles for residents and visitors alike.

“Local economies should benefit in equal measure, with tourist attractions and local businesses benefitting from new audiences seeking to experience all that Gosport has to offer and being able to do so with their EV on charge!”

Believ is a Zapmap dynamic data partner, meaning that the live status and availability of its charge points can be seen via the Zapmap app, and web map, making it more convenient for our users to choose the charge point location to visit.

The other six car parks that will be included in Believ’s charge point deployment programme are: Marine Parade Car Park, Beach Road Car Park, No.2 Battery East Car Park, Green Lane Hardway Car Park, Walpole Car Park and No.2 Battery West Car Park.
