A PROPOSAL to install electric charging points for cars at a shopping complex has been submitted to Maldon District Council.

Two charging bays at Bentalls Shopping Centre, in Heybridge, are proposed.

If approved, the ChargePoint Express 250 units will be located towards the rear of the centre, on the way to the car park.

There are five points where electric car drivers can charge their vehicles in the district, including the Maldon District Council offices and South Woodham Ferrers Station.

The district council is set to determine this proposal by March 20.
