Funding sources to pay for the stations will be identified and procurement considerations will be taken into account as well as climate action strategies.

A Naas Municipal District meeting heard on June 8 that a policy document for County Kildare will be prepared.

However Cllr Bill Clear asked how it is possible to install existing EV points without this guidance.

He supported a call from Cllr Carmel Kelly for an EV point in Sallins adding “Sallins is being left behind again.”
