The Bentley Road car park in Dalston is the location for the charging point which was unveiled by Cllr Feryal Demirci, Polly Rayne from POD Point and council officers from Parking and Streetscene services.

Cllr Demirci said: “We know that people in Hackney support our efforts to encourage the shift from petrol and diesel vehicles to electric ones.
