The Government’s National Planning Policy Framework is clear that planning applications for development should enable charging of plug-in and other ultra-low emission vehicles in safe, accessible, and convenient locations.

As part of our proposed changes to the planning system, and as committed in the Net Zero Strategy, we intend to review National Planning Policy to make sure it contributes to climate change mitigation and adaptation. As part of this, we will consider any further changes to planning guidance to support electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
