Proposed electric vehicle charging sites

Closed 3 Jul 2020

Opened 10 Jun 2020

Overview

We recently declared a climate emergency and set a target for the borough to be net carbon zero by 2030. As part of our work to achieve this, we’d like your views on our plans to introduce some dedicated parking bays in your area for residents to charge their electric vehicles (EVs).

Enabling residents to move about the borough without adding to air pollution is key to achieving our ambition. That’s why we’ve already created one of the most expansive networks of EV charging points in London.

 

Why are we considering this?

Many residents are put off making the switch to an electric vehicle because there aren’t enough charging bays near their home. Our proposals would change this.

 

What are the proposals?

We’d like to install electric vehicle charge points with dedicated parking spaces alongside. This will help residents who already own EVs and will also make it easier for those residents considering switching to a low/zero emissions vehicle.

 

Only EVs plugged in and actively charging would be allowed to use these spaces.

 

How would it work?

Between 9am to 7pm the charging bays would be available for use by any electric vehicles, with a four-hour maximum stay period. A no return period of four hours will be in place to ensure regular turnover of users.

 

To ensure the charge points are only available for residents’ use through the night (when most charging takes place), between 7pm and 9am these bays will operate as permit holder only charging bays with no time restriction, meaning only those with a H&F parking permit can use these spaces, as long as they are actively charging.
