Electrical Vehicle (EV) Charging Update

Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.


The Committee received a report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services in respect of the provision of EV charging points across the Barbican Estate Car Parks, following the introduction of Phase 1 in 2018, and the implementation of Phase 2 to the remaining car parks during Summer 2021. It included the re-introduction of a Residents Working Party via, the Residents Consultation Committee, and the ensuing meetings, actions and proposals.


Members noted an update to the report in that the Working Party had suggested a 16p per kw charge, and this would be amended before the report is presented to the BRC on 28th June 2021.  Officers were commended for their swift response to resident concerns and there had been 3 very constructive meetings in a short period of time, demonstrating good joint working between officers and residents.   Members asked if the BRC could instruct the Working Party to investigate the concept of ‘at bay’ charging for residents, noting that some technical issues would be likely.

RESOLVED, that – the report be noted.
