  • Ensure that all new developments include electric car charging facilities.
  • Invest in schemes to speed up the roll-out of rapid charging points and expand provision at popular locations such as public car parks, leisure centres, and supermarkets.
  • Invest in residential on-street charging, using the existing lamp post infrastructure wherever possible so as not to clutter the pavement.
