Draft EV Charging Strategy

The council has recently produced a draft EV Charging Strategy. Please visit the Hounslow Electric Vehicle Charging Strategy & Consultation Page, where you can learn more about our strategy and share your views as part of the current consultation by 23:59pm Sunday 11 September.

The strategy sets out how the council plans to deliver 2,000 additional charge points by May 2026. It details the type of charging points, their proposed distribution across the borough and any supporting measures that are needed.

Until recently the council has installed EV Chargepoints mainly in response to specific requests from the public. However, as EV ownership grows, the new draft strategy recognises that a more strategic, evidence-based approach is needed.
