The On-Street Charging Scheme

The Benefits to your Community
  • Residents can buy in to carbon saving
  • Air pollution can be eliminated
  • Cars can can top around the clock
  • EV charging demonstrates committment to a healthy environment

The scheme is primarily focused on the installation of chargepoints in on-street locations. However, OLEV recognises the potential pressures that may be faced by Local Authorities when allocating parking spaces for electric vehicles on residential streets. Therefore, OLEV is willing to consider applications for chargepoints situated in car parks owned by the Local Authority on a case-bycase basis where they meet the objectives of the scheme.

The Process

Applications will be considered on a monthly basis; any applications will be considered in the subsequent month following application, whilst funding remains. OLEV reserves the right to terminate or change the grant at any time but will aim to provide 4 weeks’ notice. Capital funding will be provided for the installation of the chargepoints. The capital items that are eligible for claim are limited to: • The purchase cost of charging unit • The purchase cost of electrical components related to the chargepoint • The cost of civil engineering works related to the installation • Labour costs of the installation • Hardware costs of the installation Where applicable: • The capital costs of a parking bay and traffic orders (paint and signage)
