TTF commits to producing further EV guidance for councils

The Transport Technology Forum’s Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Working Group is committing to producing further guidance designed to help council officers’ rollout the required infrastructure to keep pace with the adoption of EVs.

The group of public and private sector experts attended a meeting in Newbury, Berkshire, where they heard that local authorities are a key stakeholder when it comes to delivering the roll-out of charging infrastructure and must fully understand and embrace the technology.

The meeting heard that engagement with residents is vital when delivering a network that people want and accept. It heard that councils must keep engaging and explaining what they are doing, focussing on considerations and challenges around parking and traffic regulation orders.

The working group, which was set up by the TTF to help local councils tackle the challenges around delivering charging networks for the anticipated huge growth in electric vehicles has already published a starter guide for authorities to understand what they need to consider when it comes to delivering a charging network.
