The London Borough of Tower Hamlets have opened a consultation on where on-street charging points for electric vehicles should be installed.
With increasing demand for electric vehicle charging, the extra charging points will help to deliver the council priority of encouraging people to use cleaner vehicles. It will also help to reduce emissions from road traffic and help deliver the Mayor of London’s target for a zero emission transport network by 2050. This also forms part of the Council's climate change and clean air strategy.
To ensure the most suitable charging options are provided in the most suitable locations, the Council is asking businesses and residents where demand for electric vehicle charging infrastructure is highest. If you live or work in Tower Hamlets, take part in the consultation and be part of the decision making process.
John Biggs, Mayor of Tower Hamlets, said:
“Improving air quality is a key priority of mine. The introduction of electric vehicle charging points will make it easier for those who own electric vehicles to park and charge them. We will be consulting residents on potential locations and I am hoping the increasing convenience of charging will encourage more residents to change to an environmentally friendly car that helps reduce pollution”.
Consultation Closes: Friday 22nd December 2017
