Overview

Update: The closing date for this consultation has been extended to 3rd May.

Conventional vehicles are recognised as a major contributor to air 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 vehicle 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 electric vehicle in preference to diesel or petrol vehicles. More information on Electric Vehicles can be found on the Council website.

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 would like your views on potential electric charge point locations within the following wards:

  • Hampton Wick
  • Heathfield
  • St. Margaret’s and North Twickenham
  • Teddington
  • Twickenham Riverside
  • West Twickenham
  • Whitton
     

Charge point locations in other areas of the borough will be addressed in further phases. 



 Residents should be aware of the fact that not all of the sites listed below will be progressed. Following this initial consultation, approximately 25-35 sites will be shortlisted – around four or five sites per ward. On streets where there are two sites, only one site will go forward. Shortlisted sites would require planning permission and highway consent, which would require further consultation. 


How we chose the locations

When looking for locations for electric vehicle charging points, we have considered the following criteria:

  • Source London member requests and locations
  • Information provided by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT)
  • Resident requests for electric vehicle charging points - online form on Richmond’s website and powermystreet.co.uk
  • Transport for London research
  • Areas close to high streets and local amenities
  • Away from live equipment e.g. lamp posts (at least 2m)
  • Away from the front of residential homes
  • Areas where there is a good pavement width to allow for charge points and pedestrians


Proposed sites

In all we are considering 58 possible electric vehicle charging point sites. Following this consultation we are expecting to shortlist approximately 25-35 sites to go forward for planning permission. Maps detailing the exact location of the proposed sites by ward can be found here.

Tables illustrating the exact individual proposed location for charging points can also be found below. Each location consists of two or three parking bays and charge points. You can see the proposed parking bay location by clicking on the link below as well as an image illustrating the exact site marked in red.
