Planning a trip to Southend on Thursday and trying to find out what the local public charging facilities are? Looked on map and it's seems a little sparse. Thanks

Where are you planning on driving from? I can see five 13A / 7kW chargers (all seem to be Chargemaster, but "free"):
* London Road (close to Sainsbury's)
* Warrior Square Car Park
* Seaway Car Park (closest to the front of all the chargers, but seems to be just about as far as it could be from the sea and still be in the car park)
* Hamlet Court Road Car Park (close to Tesco Express)
* Southend Hospital (looks like the charger may be in the multi-storey car park, 2 x 7kW only)

Failing the above you could charge at the moto services Essex it's only about 25 miles away

Thanks Robert that was my original plan but i think both rapids at Thurrock are down?
Ecotricity tweeted this morning that Thurrock IKEA is back online, and also that Thurrock services has a DC/CCS charger now.
