except the point is that TPTB aren't considering this a problem
there is nothing in planning regulations to make sure all new properties
electric car "friendly" and the current trend for as many houses as possible
per acre contrives to make them less electric car friendly without even
TPTB doint have to interfere.
In 20 years time 'included off road parking and charging point' will be
as important as 'good broadband' is today, and as other have pointed out
urban populations are FAR more likely to not own a car, but to have a
subscription to a driverless electric taxi service...
Truth welcomes investigation because truth knows investigation will lead
to converts. It is deception that uses all the other techniques.

£6.40 for 2 hours at blackhourse road.
Given that there are so few electric cars presently and so many people
charge at home, one public charge point per 20 cars sounds about right
In my local shopping road, all the parking places were taken yesterday
afternoon, except for the two electric charging bays.
It's currently not a practical proposition to have an EV unless you have
off-road parking where you can have your own charging point.
Given that, the demand for public charging points in a shopping street
is pretty limited. Still, it's cool to have a reserved parking spot.
So, people who live in inner cities can add lack of EVs to their other
deprivations. They can add a lack of spaces to park their ICE cars, too.
At least, though, if everyone else went over to EVs, they wouldn't be
choked by smog.
Are plug-in cars electric cars too.
The there's the private charging points and it seems to include those that
donlt charge for charging but count it as parking so charge for that.
I doubt anyone I n ow would be willing to drive 2 miles to park for £3
and leaving it for a few hours to charge.

Yep so maybe they'll stick to fossil fuel cars.
why hasn't everyone else gone over to electric car ?
Although interesting, I wonder how much consolation it would have been
to the third Tesla driver I saw arrive at Watford Gap Services recently
to find that both Tesla Superchargers were already in use?

I don't have an attitude problem.
I only personally know of one with an electric car. Its a Smart make, and
IIRC, no longer made. They have a newish apartment in Central London with
an underground car park, and a charging point there. Makes a good deal of
sense as a car for London only use.

Unless of course someone can explain to him how to get a charging point and
who pays for it etc. and whther it's your own or do you share it with the
rest of the block or street.
If you get a charging point installed on your property, the government
pays 75% of the cost. That's then yours to use whenever needed.
As things currently stand, it would not make sense to get an EV unless
your friend has space for his own charging point. If there's only one
public charger in the neighbourhood, you couldn't rely on that for your
