On-Street Residential Vehicle Charging


South Gloucestershire Council has committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2030. As transport is the largest single source of carbon emissions within the district, a set of actions has been developed within our climate emergency action plan to help reduce the impact of transport.

Alongside promoting active travel and sustainable transport modes, our action plan recognises the importance of supporting residents transition towards electric vehicles to help reduce carbon emissions across the district. As part of our efforts, we are now exploring the opportunity to install charging infrastructure.

The key purpose of this consultation is to better understand current and future demand for on-street charging infrastructure from our residents.

The results of this consultation will help determine the suitability of locations for on-street charging infrastructure.

The scheme will increase the availability of plug-in vehicle charging infrastructure for those who do not have access to off-street parking. It is intended to satisfy the current or future demand of residents which are unable to charge at home.

This localised consultation is about eight potential sites.

  • Please see the consultation documents/drawings below for more information
  • The drawings showing the proposals are available in the consultation documents section below.

This consultation for on-street charging locations is open for three weeks and will close on 21 July 2022.


Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Strategy

On 11 July, the council will be launching a separate 12-week public consultation on a wider Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Strategy. This strategy will consider how the council can support the growth of EVs and the expansion of the charging infrastructure across South Gloucestershire. This will include On-street Residential Charging locations but also consider other interventions the council can take to support residents’ transition to electric. More information on this consultation and how you can have your say will be available from 11 July on the main consultation page.

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
