    We will strengthen investment in Lake Macquarie's EV charging, coordinating local efforts with regional, state and national EV charging networks. We will develop regional and cross-sector partnerships to support our regions transition to EVs. This will enable us to coordinate the efforts of multiple parties to achieve a fit-for purpose, regional EV charging network and leverage collaborative opportunities.

    Do you support this Strategy and the Actions that underpin it?

    We will integrate EV charging into future-decision making, with a focus on infrastructure that supports smart transport options for all parts of the community. Our planning will support the City's transport hierarchy and adapt based on community feedback. In doing so, we will move our City closer to our 2050 transport vision of a "City close to connections".

    To ensure we make the most of our large operational footprint, we will deploy appropriate charging infrastructure at key Council sites across Lake Macquarie City. This will support the transition of our own fleet and ensure a core network of chargers accessible to the public.

    Deployment of charging infrastructure by Council will support access to public chargers across the City and leading the way for others to continue further installations.

    With our partners, we will facilitate deployment of critical public charging infrastructure at key locations beyond Council's control, and provide consistent guidelines, tools and resources to support businesses, residents and developers installing their own EV charging infrastructure.

    Electric vehicle charging provides opportunities and challenges for the way we source energy and manage the grid. With our partners we will undertake smart-charging trials. These will explore ways to improve EV charging management, charge EVs from renewable energy and investigate how to include EVs into the grid. We will facilitate appropriate data sharing to improve charging outcomes.
