Question

The City of London Corporation has committed that electric vehicle charging infrastructure will only by exception be placed on-street, and only then for fast-charge infrastructure for taxis. Will your Electric Vehicle Taskforce consider calling for all electric vehicle charging points for private car charging to be placed on pavement build outs in the carriageway and not on the footway?

Planning and design issues such as this will be considered by my Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Taskforce. In the meantime, all boroughs are encouraged to follow TfL's Streetscape Guidance, which includes strict accessibility requirements and this will soon be updated to be more explicit around the placement of EV charge points. Officers will also raise this issue with the new London Councils TEC sub-group on EV charge points.
