Our long-term strategy for low-emission vehicles

Find out about our plans to facilitate electric vehicle use

Expanding our network of charge points

In the short term, we will be installing 3KW lamp column chargers with bollards next to them.

We are reviewing potential sites for new charge point locations using data collected from residents and information on power distribution.

Our low-emission vehicle charging strategy

We are committed to eliminating polluting exhaust emissions by 2050, as set out by the Mayor of London.

A partial response to this vision is our low-emission vehicle charging strategy (LEVCS). This strategy details our priorities and associated programmes for facilitating electric vehicle use.

The main programme in our LEVCS is the electric vehicle (EV) charge point installation. We have got funding from the Go Ultra Low City Scheme (GULCS) to deploy a network of 3KW residential EV charge points across the borough.

The use of electric vehicles has increased. Our overall aim is to encourage walking and cycling journeys. But we also recognise the need for an electric vehicle option for essential car journeys.

Where should we install charge points?

We are consulting on locations for charge points. We are considering information provided by residents.
