Consultation on the proposed locations of Vehicle On-street Residential Chargepoints

The council is seeking views from local residents, the public and stakeholders on 53 proposed locations across the borough for on-street residential electric car charge points to support the rollout for residents who don’t have the option to provide their own off street charging facilities and to encourage people to use greener vehicles.

The £420k* scheme, funded through an Office of Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) grant and chargepoint operators, will help to realise the council’s commitment to the Black Country Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle Strategy, respond to the climate emergency and help to build infrastructure in time for the government ban on sales of new petrol and diesel vehicles in 2030.

Residents and stakeholders are encouraged to respond to the consultation by completing an online survey. The survey opens on Monday 14 November 2022 until Monday 5 December 2022 at 5pm.

Any changes to chargepoint locations will be communicated with affected residents/businesses, and a list of final locations will be updated on the council’s website prior to installation.

A Charge Point Operator has been procured and installation of charge points is expected to commence early next year.

More information

Locations have been identified based on a set of criteria, which include;

  • Near residential properties with no off-street parking
  • sufficient local power/grid capacity
  • adequate footpath and road widths
  • locations are free from other street furniture/overhanging trees
  • having minimum impact on existing on-street parking practices

These are chargepoints which can charge a 40kW battery in 4 to 6 hours and are suited to residential areas where residents are more likely to leave their vehicles parked for a prolonged period, or overnight.

In order to safeguard bays for the use of charging only, it is the intention to introduce experimental Traffic Regulation Orders such that any necessary enforcement of the bays can be carried out if required.

This first phase of the scheme will see 53 chargepoint locations installed across the borough. Work to identify a second tranche of sites is already underway.

Useful information on using electric vehicles can be found via the Energy Saving Trust
