Electric car chargers to be installed on every Hackney street by 2022 – Evening Standard


Plans to install electric car chargers in every street in Hackney by 2022 have been revealed.

The council is set to conduct a feasibility study into proposals that could see 2,000 charging points put on residential streets.

It follows a previous pledge by Hackney mayor Philip Glanville for 80 per cent of residents to be within half a kilometre of a charging point.

But those plans were today called “not fit for purpose” by the council’s cabinet member for transport Jon Burke.

He said: “Cars are driven for convenience, not to drive half a kilometre to charge it for a few hours and then come back.”

Existing lampposts in the borough could be converted to charging points rather than installing standalone electrical points.
