FOI Request - On Street Charging Points
Please note that throughout these questions, the phrase “On Street Charging Point” refers to the installation of charging points for electric vehicles in on-street locations with the primary purpose of being used by residents.
1) Has your council applied for funding from the government’s ‘On Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme’? (The scheme that is being run by OZEV and the Energy Saving Trust).
If your answer to question 1 is YES, please answer question 2:
2 a) How much government money has your council been granted to date through the ‘On Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme’?
2 b) How many on street charging points has your council installed to date, using funding from the‘’On Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme’?
2 c) How many on street charging points had your council already installed before applying for the ‘On Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme’? (to include any on street charging points that the council has installed to date without any government funding).
If your answer to question 1 is NO, please answer question 3:
3 a) Has your council installed any on street charging points to date? If so, please provide a figure of how many on street charging points you have installed.
3 b) Does your council have any future plans, or plans already underway, to apply for funding from the government’s ‘On Street Residential Changepoint Scheme’?
3 c) Does your council have any plans to install any on street charging points in the future?
3c) Not at this moment. Resources are concentrating on the installation of publicly accessible car chargers using funding from Transport Scotland through Local Authority Implementation Programme (LAIP). Local EV Users seem to content with this this approach at the moment and there is minimal interest from local residents in the 'On Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme'.
