Resources for local authorities on electric vehicle chargepoints

With the UK Government planning to end the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030, and the increasing need to take action on climate change and air pollution, many local authorities are looking to establish or expand their electric vehicle (EV) charging point provision.

We have a wide range of useful resources to help local authority officers deliver high quality public charging infrastructure, including webinars, case studies and best practice guidance.

Sign up to our newsletter, Authority Alert, for the latest updates.

You may also be interested in our free, one-to-one assistance offered through the Local Government Support Programme in England and our UK-wide On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme application support.


Interested in what other councils are doing? Our webinars are tailored to help local authority officers build their knowledge and share expertise across many aspects of low emission transport.

We don’t currently have any upcoming webinars.

Local authority EV forums

Want to speak to other officers supporting EVs? In partnership with the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) we host quarterly local authority EV forums for council officers, in which topics for discussion are designed around your feedback.
