On 15 July both the Department for Transport and the Office for Low Emission Vehicles published (separate) consultations on improving the infrastructure in England for charging electric vehicles.

If the consultation is met positively it could lead to obligations on developers to install chargepoints or cables on properties that they are building or renovating and, depending on the number of parking spaces at the property, ultimately existing properties too.  This follows the emissions reduction theme of The Road to Zero Strategy, published by the Government in July 2018.

The push towards lower emission travel on our roads continues.
