Parking is the responsibility of local authorities and it is for them to determine what is best for their own area. However, the Government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) offers a comprehensive package of support. This includes grants for supporting consumers to install charging infrastructure at home and funding for local authorities to support those households without off-street parking.
