Electric vehicle charging points

The benefits of reduced running costs and low emissions mean that electric vehicles (EV) are a popular alternative to petrol or diesel. Electric car charging points can be installed to front gardens without a licence. The location should be carefully considered. The outlet can be wall mounted or installed on a timber up-stand or post located discretely at low level. Try to avoid trailing cables and speak with your neighbours to make sure the installation does not impact them.

If you are considering installing a new hard standing for your car to be parked off- street, a licence is required.
