Uppingham Electric Car Reaches Portugal PDF Print E-mail

As part of a trial to prove that an electric car can now serve as one's main car rather than a second car, an Uppingham based BMW I3 has reached the north of Portugal having travelled through France and Spain.  The car called first at Uppingham's twin town Caudebec en Caux, France (pictured), where it was recharged by one of the town's twinning association families prior to a visit to the local Mairie. 

Recharging the car on its journey has been via a mix of public charging points and free overnight charges from hotels en route. A celebratory charge in Porto, Portugal was provided by the city's BMW I dealer before the vehicle toured the north of the country and finally boarded a ferry in Santander, Spain  to return to the midlands via Portsmouth.

Rutland County Council has confirmed it is to offer a five year interest free loan to Community Partnership Uppingham First to help it purchase a nearly new minibus to relaunch an Uppingham Hopper service. Subject to support by volunteer drivers, the offer should enable the service to be relaunched early in the new year.

Repayment of the loan will be facilitated partly by business and community donations. A decision is now awaited from Uppingham Town Council as to whether it will part support the bus running costs estimated at £500 per month.

altOne of the projects in the recently published 2017 Uppingham Town Centre & Business Zones Plan (UTC&BZP)  has attracted a national grant offer.

The E J Toon Housing Project for local young people has been awarded a preliminary viability study grant to establish whether the project is feasible.  The initiative has been made possible by the donation of land originally owned by deceased undertaker E J Toon (pictured)   

Work on the study will commence in late October. See the project outline and the UTC&BZP  www.uppinghamneighbourhoodplan.info
