We would like to understand where you would like publicly-accessible electric vehicle chargepoints across Buckinghamshire.

In January 2024, we were successful in securing £1.9m from the UK Government’s Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (LEVI) capital fund to install hundreds of new publicly-accessible electric vehicle (EV) charging points across the county.

Our aim is to improve access to EV chargepoints in areas where most properties have no driveways.

As per the expectations of LEVI, the focus of the project will be to install EV chargepoints on existing lampposts which will provide a slow (<7kW) charge. This will help existing EV owners to charge their cars during the day and overnight in more convenient locations.

We will also be looking at installing, where feasible, the fast (22kW) chargepoints in our publicly-accessible car parks across the county.

To help us identify potential sites, an initial assessment has been undertaken to identify areas that would benefit from EV charging in Buckinghamshire. This work considered all ad-hoc requests for EV chargepoints received through the Council’s EV Mailbox to-date.

To ensure we are choosing the most convenient and accessible locations across Buckinghamshire, we would like you to tell us where EV chargepoints are most needed by filling in our short survey.

This will help us to understand general trends and patterns for EV charging provision in the county, including:

  • high demand EV charging locations;
  • type of vehicle ownership;
  • willingness to switch to EVs; and
  • barriers to switching to EVs.

We are interested in hearing from both existing EV owners and anyone who may be interested in owning an EV in the future, to ensure we are providing recharging infrastructure in the right locations.

What happens next

Responses to the survey will be analysed to identify key trends and patterns for EV charging demand in Buckinghamshire.

An initial assessment will be undertaken on the postcode locations and sites will be prioritised based on the following criteria:

  • Low levels of off-street parking;
  • Ease of parking next to lampposts in the area; and
  • High usage potential

These priority locations will be taken forward to be surveyed and tested to check if the locations are suitable for EV charging.

Installations of LEVI-funded chargepoints are likely to begin in 2025.

As of 1 January 2024, there were 294 publicly-accessible EV chargepoints across the county owned by various operators (according to the Department for Transport). This project will help to work towards the target of 1,000 publicly-accessible chargepoints in Buckinghamshire by the end of 2027, as set out in Buckinghamshire Council’s 5-year EV Action Plan.
