Comment received from the council at York

Dear Gary

Thank you for your email.

I have been advised by the Council's Low emissions officer as to the working terms and conditions for the usage of the charging machines. He has explained that:

The charging post cost when plugged in is 50p per hour. This is charged whether the battery is full or not.

This can take between 1 and 10 hours depending on how much the car needs to be charged.

The stickers on the chargers say 12 hr max which would be £6 cost. This is to stop people leaving their cars for days and blocking access.

Therefore you would be able to park in the bay after your car has been charged fully, however you would be required to still pay the 50p an hour fee for the use of the bay.

I hope this does clarify the matter for you.

Kind Regards

That sounds remarkably fair after the Chargemaster fiasco.

It does sound fair, except if like in our county who are concentrating on installing in railway stations where you would not have the option to move the car while on a rail trip. On the other hand if using the train most people live close to a station and should not need to charge their car.
