Does anyone have a letter template for requesting EV charge points in public locations?

Morning. Anyone had any joy here? Just about to start contacting my LA. Wanted to see how other people were going about it.

Cheers,
Matt.

Found we have had to start from the very basics. A real lack of understanding and ambition in our area.

LA involvement on public roads typically leads to a cost of £10, 000 for two type 2 spaces due to planning etc. And they fret about who pays for the leccy.

This contrasts with the zero carbon world model which costs £500 approx for the same provision with the hardware donated. Therefore am pushing LA locally to support this model - through their existing support for local business particularly in the leisure and tourism sectors. Am wondering about seeking LEDU support.

A template would be good.

£10k is obscene. It shows how much companies like Chargemaster are hoovering up the subsidies.
Am no expert but it seems like a lot of that cost can come from bureaucracy -like making legal amendments for provision on a public road. The zcw model escapes these costs because their posts are on private land. Also costs saved as no need for rfid reader / mobile connection / back office systems.

Agreed.

What do we, the EV consumers, want from the OLEV funding? As many charge points as possible, or a twentieth of the number, but ones which are all-singing/dancing/RFIDing?

I'd prefer more, dumb posts.
