The current charge points are untethered, type 2, single phase, twin socket, 7.4kw charge points, so you will require your own compatible cable in order to charge your car.
The exception to this is the Rapid Charge Point at Hailgate car park, Howden, which is a tethered unit owned and operated by BP Chargemaster on behalf of Highways England. This unit has the following connectors: DC Combo Type 2 50kw, CHAdeMO 50kw, Type 2 socket 43kw.
None of the council-provided charge points provide contactless payment facilities, and therefore you should refer to their individual websites as to how to operate their equipment and find out what payment options/methods are available.
