Charging an electric vehicle at home

Charging at homes with off-street parking

Further guidance on installing a charge point at home

Charging at homes without off-street parking

Currently residents who do not have off-street parking within their property are not able to install an EV-charger in their home.

We do not currently allow residents to trail cables across the footway or public highway.

We are expecting advice from Central Government on how to address this situation which affects 40% of the UKs population. While we are waiting for this advice, we are looking at potential options to enable residents to charge their vehicle safely at home without obstruction to other highway users such as pedestrians and motorists.
