Electric Vehicle Charging Points Survey

Have your say on Electric Vehicle (EV) charge points in Nottingham. 

Decarbonising the transport sector is a key priority for both Nottingham City Council and central government. Not only will it contribute to the city’s carbon neutral ambitions, but it will help improve air quality, and decrease noise pollution. With a UK government ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles set for 2035, the transition to EVs is accelerating.

Charging infrastructure will need to increase to help with this transition. In collaboration with Midlands Connect and other Midlands Councils, we have successfully bid and been awarded £1.7m of the Government’s Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (LEVI) fund to get more EV charge points on Nottingham’s streets.

This survey will highlight EV drivers and potential future EV drivers’ habits and preferences regarding EV charging in Nottingham. The results will help the council to plan the rollout of future charging infrastructure.

Why are you doing the survey?

Through this survey, residents can help the council understand how the charging network can be improved and provide ideas for new potential charge point locations around the city. Often, a lack of off-street parking is a barrier for people to shift to EVs. By making the Nottingham Charging Network more widespread, particularly in residential areas, the council aims to increase the number of EVs in the city. We’re seeking to collect data on where residents would like to have charge points located and what types would best suit their needs.

What will you do with the feedback?

The feedback will be used to help develop the council’s Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategy and an action plan for the installation of new charge points around the city. Survey participants will be able to state their preferences regarding EV charger types, EV charging behaviours, and site locations. This information will be utilised to improve our site database and refine how we identify new locations to meet residents needs.

When does the survey close?

Monday 8 April 2024

How long will it take to complete?

It will take around 10 minutes to complete the survey. We’re giving £10 Amazon vouchers to five people who complete the survey.

Who can take the survey?

Anyone can take the survey although it is aimed at both current and potential future EV drivers who may use public charging infrastructure. Particularly, we are looking to hear from residents who do not have access to off-street parking.
