SIR – RE the article to build another 196 houses in Pershore made me wonder if the planning authorities have taken into account the government’s drive to get more electric cars on the road and are plans in place to ensure all new housing developments have sufficient charging points in the plans for their houses.

It would be much easier and less costly to include such facilities at the outset than to disrupt it all later.

I see also that Wychavon are spending £150,000 on 20 new public charging points. They are not cheap and it would make more sense to include such facilities in new

houses at the outset so that the cost can be included in a mortgage and spread over time.
