I do hope people who CAN have their own point installed at home DO - otherwise more and more of my tax receipts will go towards subsiding others even though I paid 600 quid to have my own point.

I'm certainly planning to. Thankfully my landlord is also keen on the idea so he's happy for me to get one fitted. Does help that he's a close friend of mine who had to move out of Manchester for work, and I was looking for a place, so it all worked nicely!

What's really needed is support for charging in apartment blocks and on-street parking. A friend is head of the resident's board in his building, and the amount of issues they've had with getting chargers fitted is ridiculous. He doesn't have a car, but he's keen on getting some process in for fitting chargers for those who want them. Especially when EVs work so well for people living in cities! Think it should be mandatory on new-builds for a charging solution to be present and hopefully this governmental change will help. Although I have little faith in this lot...

With all the building going on with just allocated parking spaces away from the property I fear that anyone owning a property without the ability to charge a car will find their home more difficult to sell and find their homes value affected too. All EV owners already would choose a property based on the ability to charge at home, and this will only increase over the next few years.
