Overview

On-street Electric Vehicle Charging Point Proposal

The council is proposing to install on street electric vehicle charging points (EVCPs) and associated EV charging bays and we are asking your feedback on this proposal.

Some of the EVCPs will be mounted on lamp columns, where they are located at the front of the footway. Others will be located within a bollard, where the lamp column that provides the electrical supply is located at the back of the footway or is not suitable for an EVCP add - on. The associated EV charging bays will be clearly marked out on the carriageway for EV use only.

The layout plans of the proposed locations and the draft Traffic Management order are available for your review. 

Why make these changes?

  • An Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) has been in place in central London since 8 April 2019 to help improve air quality. Most vehicles, including cars and vans needed to meet new, tighter exhaust emission standards (ULEZ standards) or pay a daily charge to travel within the area of the ULEZ. From 25 October 2021, the ULEZ area will be expanded to include the area bounded by the North and South Circular Roads. This will include western areas of the London Borough of Redbridge such as South Woodford, Snaresbrook, Wanstead, and Aldersbrook.
  • The main objective of the proposed on-street EVCPs is to support the ULEZ-wide transition to cleaner cars. As the sale of new petrol and diesel cars will be banned from 2030, the Council is working on providing sufficient EVCP infrastructure to meet the demand for EVCPs.

How will the Council implement the EVCPs and associated EV charging bays?

The Council will:

  • Undertake a non-statutory consultation on the location of the proposed on-street EVCPs
  • Undertake a consultation on the installation and operation of the on-street electric vehicle charge points (S.17, London Local Authority and Transport for London Act 2013);
  • Publicise a draft “Permanent” TMO, advertise it on-site and in local newspapers and undertake a statutory TMO consultation;
  • Following the closure of the above consultations, make a decision as to the installation of the EVCPs;
  • Following any decision to proceed with the installation of EVCPs, introduce the amended TMO.

What happens next

All the feedback that the Council receives from these three public consultations will be analysed and considered carefully. A decision will then be made as to installing the electric vehicle charge points and that decision will then be publicised.
