    Gretna is my regular stop between home and Newcastle, so was delighted to see it on this post Supercharger Locations UK - Page 9

    Drove in this morning and they've started building a new car park. Took a couple of pics as there seemed to be a two car bay at the entrance, segregated from the rest of the car park.

    Just looked up the planning application and it's deliberate. I can't believe it's for disabled access as it's so far away from the main building.

    Nothing in the application documents regarding Supercharger, but it does look like it could be in preparation?

    Hello chris.c
    Great post, which seems to corroborate my best guess from staring at the map I picked up form the Tesla stand at Motorexpo in Canary Wharf.
    I've recopied it here, please keep us all up to speed as work develops. I think the map is pretty encouraging for future owners!

    Cheers, I'm through Gretna fairly often, so will keep watching and have bookmarked the page on D&G council's planning site too.

    OT:Is it just me, or does Edinburgh look like two overlapping dots?

    It's a Welcome Break station, so could be Ecotricity?

    There is a distinct lack of SC cabling there :(

    Yea, distinct lack of any cabling. Just seemed odd to have the separate bay?
