Your say on electric charging points

Published: Friday, 16 July 2021

Havering Council wants to hear from residents and businesses on where electric vehicle charging points could be located across the borough.

The Government announced that from 2030, new petrol and diesel cars would no longer be on sale within the UK.

This means that over the next few years, the number of electric vehicles on the road is expected to increase.

For the Council to look at meeting a demand in the borough, it needs to consider installing electric vehicle charging points in different areas.

This is so that residents and businesses are as equipped as possible to make the switch to electric.

Councillor Osman Dervish, Havering’s Cabinet Member, said:

“We want to know what our residents think around electric vehicles and charging points.

"Their feedback will enable us to look into where the biggest demand is for charging points and to place them accordingly.

“Electric vehicles are just one part of the long term future looking at helping to reduce harmful emissions that pollute our air.

“We already have in place our air quality action plan, where we continue to take actions that will help us reduce air pollution across the borough.

“This will help us to keep Havering as one of the greenest and cleanest boroughs in London.”
