Harrow consults on charging stations

Harrow Council is consulting on locations for electric car charging stations, which will be installed thanks to a grant from the Mayor of London.

Cllr Graham Henson, Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: “Our plan is a breath of fresh air for Harrow as we bid to tackle noise and pollution. Now we need to find out where to put these charging points, so they will really be used and make a real difference.”

Harrow Council’s plan is responding to growing demand for electric vehicles – with more than 45,000 new ultra-low emission vehicles registered across the country in the past year.

Criteria for on-street locations for rapid and lower-speed charging points will include demand from residents or businesses, places where people with electric vehicles live and work, proximity to popular destinations, and strategic borough-wide coverage.

The consultation runs until November 20th 2017.
