Electric Vehicle Charging Point Consultation

Closed 11 Mar 2018

Opened 12 Feb 2018


Conventional vehicles are recognised as a major contributor to pollution, therefore the introduction of electric vehicle charging infrastructure is a priority for the Council to support more sustainable travel and cleaner air. This is detailed in the Council's Electric Vehicle Recharging Strategy.

Electric vehicles provide a low-emission solution to driving in the city, and the installation of electric charging points around Richmond will help meet the needs of the growing number of people choosing to own a pure electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle in preference to diesel or petrol vehicles.

Richmond Council in partnership with Source London is planning on installing publicly available electric vehicle charging points. These would be funded by Source London and form part of the London wide Source London charging network, which currently operates in 21 other London boroughs. Electric vehicle charging bays would be implemented next to charge points for the sole use of electric vehicles while they are charging. 

We are consulting you on possible electric charge point locations within the first areas of Barnes, East Sheen, Kew, Mortlake and North Richmond areas. These areas have been selected due to residents' requests for electric vehicle charging. Charge point locations in other areas of the Borough will be addressed in further phases.

Following this initial consultation, it is intended that a number of sites would be shortlisted. Shortlisted sites would require planning permission and highway consent, which would require further consultation.  

A table detailing the proposed sites for the electic vehicle charging points can be found below. Each location consists of three parking bays and charge points. The proposed parking bays are shown on the photo in red.
