There have been 20 dedicated car club bay charge points installed to date, with a further six planned by the end of December 2020. Fewer charging points are being installed at car club bays than originally planned. This is due to state aid constraints as well as feedback received from the industry relating to the commercial viability of this operating model and associated user requirements.

Given the above, the GULCS Project Board agreed to divert funding to install even more residential charge points that, in some circumstances, would also be available for car club operators to use.
