Sent by vehicle manufacturer Vauxhall, the FOI request to 414 councils across the UK also found that 69% of local authorities have yet to install any on-street chargers.

According to the 289 councils who provided data up to 1 July, only 14,188 new charge points are planned for installation this year.

Approximately 40% of UK households do not have a driveway or access to off-street parking. This rises to 60% in urban areas.

Of the councils who responded to Vauxhall’s FOI request, 45% said they had no plans to install residential on-street chargers this year.

Residential on-street charging solutions include lamp post chargers and pavement-mounted bollards. The Government aims to have 300,000 running by the end of 2030.
