Local councils using electric car grant to ‘bolster’ town centres as hundreds unprepared

The AA investigation shows that London boroughs have been early adopters of on-street charging points with Brighton and Hove, Coventry and West Berkshire also found to be prepared for the switchover.

Meanwhile, 32 councils say they will install their first on-street charging stations before the end of 2021.

However, the investigation did find that there was an adequate number of chatting points for electric cars currently on the road.

Eight out of 10 owners say they would like to charge an electric car overnight at home, prompting the AA to call for stations to be installed at least a five-minute walk from built-up residential areas.
