Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Strategy consultation
This consultation is now closed
Thank you to everyone who took part. Your feedback will be considered by the Council's Cabinet help inform and shape the new strategy.
The results are being analysed and a report which summarises your feedback will be available here in Summer 2023. We will share the final strategy shortly after.
The Council has declared a climate emergency and is working to achieve a 'net zero carbon' borough by 2045. Transitioning to a net zero transport system is an essential part of achieving this. To do so, we all need to use motorised travel less, substantially increase our use of public transport and, where car travel is unavoidable, only use fully zero-emission vehicles by 2050. Additionally, national government has plans to end the sale of petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030, and sales of electric vehicles are already rising rapidly across our borough and the country at large.
We know that the availability of public charge point infrastructure is a real barrier holding people back from transitioning to an electric vehicle. This strategy sets out a forecast of the scale of anticipated demand for charge points over the next few years and the actions the council and partners can take to support the roll-out of this new infrastructure.
If you have an interest in electric vehicles, we would like to hear what you think.
