To request an on-street electric vehicle charge point near your home in the London Borough of Hounslow, you will need to:

Click for Islington

If you are interested in having an electric vehicle charge point installed near your property in the London Borough of Islington, please email [email protected] with your suggested location.

Click for Kensington and Chelsea

If you would like the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to consider installing an electric vehicle charge point in a lamp column near your home, please send your suggestions for two or three lamp columns (each column is clearly numbered) to [email protected]

It is important that you think about the likely availability of the parking space when choosing the locations. It may be that columns closest to your home are not the best choices and lamp columns near bays which are less likely to be occupied would be better to maximise the likelihood of accessing the sockets. Another consideration is whether to choose columns by residents’ bays or pay and display bays. Residents’ bays will be free to permit-holders but may be occupied by a non-electric vehicle for long periods of time. Pay and display bays would incur a parking charge during controlled hours but would be free at night and would offer the advantage that there is a turnover of cars using them.

Chargers in lamp columns cannot be installed next to yellow line restrictions. Unfortunately, the heritage style lamp columns are not large enough to accommodate chargers. These locations may be considered for the installation of separate charge points bollards.

General information about electric vehicles and charging in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is available on their website.
