Local authorities have an important role in working with the commercial chargepoint market and supporting the rollout of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles in their areas.

The Government has awarded over £5.63m under the On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme (ORCS) in the period 2020/2021 and continues to offer assistance under the scheme from which local authorities can bid into to install chargepoints for those without off-street parking.

No funding for electric vehicle infrastructure was given to the GULCS, ULEV Taxi Infrastructure, JAQU CAFs or CCAV FTZs for the period 2020/2021.
