Electric Vehicle Charging Points

Electric Vehicle Charging Points

Update 18/01/2018

The rapid electric vehicle charging point at 251-245 Lower Richmond Road (ref 17/3687/FUL) has been approved.

Update 14/12/2017

In October 2016 we commented in support of Richmond Council’s policy on encouraging an increase in uptake of electric vehicles in the Borough. Much depends on finding suitable locations for electric vehicle charging points, convenient for residents. We commented on the proposal for a charging point at 241-245 Lower Richmond Road (A316) (Council reference 17/3687/FUL) to say that we encouraged the expansion of electric charging points being promoted by Transport for London and suggested suitable arrangements be agreed for when the charging points might be used for commercial vehicles and when for residents. We also asked whether other off road locations were being actively considered.

The Council are having to weigh up the demand for charging points with the increase in parking stress through loss of parking spaces in each proposed location.The Council’s Planning Committee considered a number of applications for charging points at their meeting on 29th November 2017 and turned them down because of the parking stress created. We hope suitable alternative locations will be identified so that the policy to encourage uptake of electric cars can be implemented quickly.

    Museum consultant and historian Val Bott has been studying the heyday of nursery gardening since 2006. In parishes along the Thames their garden grounds were well located for the river and road transport and they supplied estates and gardens of every size. Members of one family held the majority of royal contracts in the 18th century, in London, Windsor, Hampton Court, and Richmond. Although they were based in Isleworth, the Greening family had royal contracts at both the Kew Garden and the Richmond Garden, both part of the Kew Gardens today.
