Electric Vehicles Charging - Draft Strategy Consultation

Have your say on South Gloucestershire’s new draft strategy for ‘Electric Vehicle Charging'

We are seeking your views on South Gloucestershire Council’s draft Electric Vehicle Charging Strategy.

The aim of the strategy is to establish our role in ensuring that our residents and visitors who need to drive cars – where cycling, walking or public transport is not practicable - are supported to do so in zero emission vehicles.

Our vision

This strategy sets out our ambitions for the provision of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in South Gloucestershire, ahead of the phase out of new petrol and diesel cars by 2030.

We intend to ensure the vast majority of households in South Gloucestershire are within one mile of reliable and accessible charging infrastructure.

What this means

By putting this strategy into action, we aim to:

  1. Enhance social equity
  2. Improved air quality
  3. Tackle the Climate Emergency
  4. Support sustainable economic development
  5. Lead by example

How to have your say

This consultation is an opportunity to help shape our proposals and ensure that we have a strategy that works for the residents of South Gloucestershire. Your answers to this survey will help inform decision making and strengthen the way we work together towards a shared vision for sustainable transport in South Gloucestershire.

You can read the draft strategy document on our website and you can also download a summary by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page.

We would like to know what you think and you can do this by completing our online survey.

You can also download a paper copy of the questionnaire which you can print and send back to us using the FREEPOST address.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
Target Audience
  • All residents
