I don't particularly want my council to pay for me to get a charger on my street as they have more essential things ro spend the money on. I'm more than happy to pay the 25% of the cost not covered by the OLEV grant rather than the local authority. What I DO want is for Surrey to just make a decision as to what their policy is and then let me get on with it. I've been waiting 12 months for them to produce their charging policy for residents without onstreet parking, and then once it's been published this month, I then have to wait another 3 months for the public consultation. Until then, they won't consider any OLEV applications. If the policy is finally approved by the committee in October then they'll only be 5 montsh left on the OLEV grants anyway so I doubt many will get installed at this rate!I wouldn’t be happy that my council tax goes to providing that one guy a service that I don’t get myself
And why do it on some back street? Do the high street first.
His solution needs to be truly bespoke and funded by him. You can buy charger specific extensions and he could have it flush against the wall then across the pavement with appropriate safety precautions - and with the approval of neighbours.
It’s clearly an article to make a point
But this is exactly my objection to public destination charging, 'period'.I wouldn’t be happy that my council tax goes to providing that one guy a service that I don’t get myself
