Grant funding from the Office of Zero Emission Vehicles
Havering Council recently announced that they have accepted funding of £176,390 from the Government through the Office of Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) to install electric vehicle charge points (EVCPs) in selected Council owned car parks.
The locations and number of charging points are listed below –
Balgores Square (2 charge points), Billet Lane (6), Cherry Tree Lane (6), Dorrington Gardens (6), Fentiman Way (6), Keswick Avenue (6), Oldchurch Road (6), Town Hall (Front) (6), Woodhall Crescent (2), Hilldene Avenue (8), Tadworth Parade (8) and Slaney Road (6).
Unfortunately, the council’s criteria for the locations of proposed charging points (see below), means that Upminster and Cranham will not receive any allocation of charging points.
‘The primary criteria for charge points in Council owned car parks is that they should be accessible 24 hours a day by residents and visitors. They are also required to be within a 5- 10 minute walk of residential arears with relatively low home charging capability.’

Residents’ Association councillors will be looking to ensure that any future bids for funding include our areas.
