Lamp Column Charging Points
The Council has been awarded funding through the Go Ultra Low Cities Scheme (GULCS) for lamp column electric vehicle charging in the borough. This is from the Office of Low Emissions (OLEV).
Lamp column electric vehicle charging is being provided for residents who already own or are planning to switch to an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle and have no off-road parking.
Since January 2018 we have received more than 400 requests from residents who would like a lamp column charge point on their street.
We have appointed Siemens to install 230 charging points on street lamp columns across the borough. This equipment ties in with ubitricity offering an on-street option for residents.
Installation has commenced. Find out where lamp column charging points are on a map. This information will be updated once more charging points are added.
Residents can choose between membership or Pay-As-You-Go options.

We can no longer include new requests for lamp column charge points into this scheme as it has reached its maximum number of requests.
However, we still welcome resident requests as this will help us inform decision making process for future installations. If you are interested in having a charging point installed in a lamp column on your street, please complete our online form.
