Charge points

There are different types of charge points available. All charge points are available on a pay-as-you-go basis, with cheaper tariffs available if you pay to join a charge point operator’s network.

To minimise street clutter, we have installed some of our street lights with charge points. These lower power charge points (3-5kw) are managed by Ubitricity and are well-suited to charging vehicles which will be parked for several hours or overnight. Street light charge points are our preferred solution for residential streets.

The borough has also installed more powerful 7kw charge points for those who need to charge their vehicles more quickly. These are operated by Charge Your Car.

Since 2018, we have installed over 20 rapid 43kw charge points that will be capable of recharging most electric vehicles in around 20 minutes. These will be open to all users but will be well-suited to taxis and other heavily-utilised commercial vehicles. We will be continuing this over the next few years, taking advantage of technical advances to make vehicle charging even quicker.

Our plans for more charge points

If you already own an electric vehicle, or are considering buying one, please let us know. This will help us map demand and plan where new charge points are needed.

Whilst all requests will be considered, those applications confirming actual or imminent ownership and private hire vehicle usage will be given additional weighting in order to bring the quickest positive change for our residents and our streets. If you have a Blue Badge number and a disabled bay, it would help if you could add the details in the form.

As part of our efforts to improve air quality and facilitate the switch to cleaner vehicles, we have committed to install over 200 charge points by 2022. We want every household with no access to off-street parking to be within a five-minute walk of their nearest charge point.

In addition to rapid charge points, we plan to install more charge points in our streets in 2021/22.  In September 2020, we installed 62 new charge points throughout Lambeth in response to indicated residential need. We also upgraded 14 more to allow a PAYG (pay-as-you-go) function with QR code functionality. We're continuing this installation programme throughout 2021.

See the list of new charge points currently being installed in the table at the bottom of the page. This consists of 65 units being added right now and completed over the next several weeks.

We are also beginning the process of making our EVCP bays dedicated for EV use only and will keep you fully informed once we have a confirmed list of the first batch going in, which will maximise your opportunity to charge your EV once implemented.  We hope to start this from early in 2022.

Considering buying an electric vehicle?

The Energy Savings Trust has useful information for residents and businesses considering buying an electric vehicle, including guidance on the grants available from central government.

Installing a charge point at home

If you have your own off-street parking you can access government grants to help pay for the installation of your own chargepoint. Visit the Energy Savings Trust website for up-to-date information on home-charger grants. The vast majority of people will not need to apply to the council for planning permission to install a home charger as the law allows chargepoints to be installed, altered or replaced in areas of off-street parking if:

  • they are not within 2 metres of the highway
  • ‘upstands’ (e.g. bollards) do not exceed 2.3 metres in height, or 0.2 cubic metres if wall-mounted
  • they are not within a site designated as a scheduled monument, or within the curtilage ( “an area of land attached to a house and forming one enclosure with it”) of a listed building - for clarification on the curtilage of any listed building within Lambeth please e-mail planningconservation@lambeth.gov.uk with the address of the property and a clear illustration showing the location of the proposed charging point
  • there is not more than one upstand for each parking space
