Suggest an Electric Vehicle (EV) Charge Point location

We are always looking for new locations for electrical vehicle charging points. Normally this would be a car park large enough to allow electric vehicle charging with a good surface, such as a standard Wiltshire Council car park that is signed and lined.

There is also the option for on-street charging, where chargers are placed on the highway, usually on small islands alongside the pavement. This solution needs plenty of parking space, as a space is usually lost to the island. The two car parking spaces either side of the island are designated as the electrical vehicle charging area, and parking charges apply to ensure the spaces are only used while charging. To do this, we need to implement a traffic regulation order, which can only be enacted following consultation. Because of this, any application must have the full support of local residents.

Every application will be assessed against the criteria which will look at:

  • the local demand - there must be a need for the charger
  • the effect on the existing parking arrangements
  • the infrastructure to support charging, for example there must be an electrical supply ready, available with capacity to allow for the charging
  • the support of the local community
  • the opportunity for external funding, such as government grants.

Visit GOV.UK (opens new window) to see the criteria for government grants.
