EV charge points

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear East Lothian Council,

Central government has set a number of targets to move the UK away from fossil to renewable energy, including transport.

As such I am undertaking a survey to understand how these initiatives are being filtered down via public bodies.

Question1
Do you own any electric vehicle charging points which are for the use of members of the public?

Yes or No

Have you gifted to any 3rd party, EV charge points for public use?

Yes or No

Question 2
If yes to question 1, are any of them the old fashioned 3 pin plug type?

Yes or No

Question 3
Budgets permitting, does the authority have any plans to install any public access charging points in the next 24 months?

Yes / No or possibly

Question 4
Accepting the bulk of charging will be at home or the work place for those who do not have off street parking. Does the authority provide EV charging points for staff and visitors?

Yes / No or possibly

Over the next 24 months does the authority have plans to either introduce staff EV charging points or increase the current estate for this type of use?

Yes / No or possibly

Question 5
Does the council have its own fleet of vehicles?

Yes or No

If yes to Q5, are any of them electric or hybrid vehicles?

Yes or No

Question 6
If Q5 the answer was yes, when your current vehicles are due for renewal, will the authority automatically consider “ultra low vehicles” (75g or less of CO2 per kilometre from the tailpipe and are capable of a minimum 10 miles of zero-emission driving) as part of the selection criteria?

Yes or No

As part of the tender process for the supply of external services which will include an element of road transport, either direct or indirectly. Does the authority ensure “ultra low vehicles” will be used by the winning company where ever possible?

Yes or No

Question 7
If a planning authority, does the authority make it a condition for the development of new commercial properties to include the provision of EV charge points?

Yes or No

If no, is this likely to charge within the next 24 months?

Yes or No

If a planning authority, does the authority make it a condition of planning for the development of new private properties with communal parking to include the provision of EV charge points?

Yes or No

If no, is this likely to charge within the next 24 months?

Yes or No

If a planning authority, does the authority make it a condition of planning for the development of new private properties with off street parking to include the provision of EV charge points or at a minimum the provision of the power cable from the consumer unit to the intended parking area?

Yes or No

If no, is this likely to charge within the next 24 months?

Thank you for your support in our research

Yours faithfully,

John West

First, please accept my apologies for the delay in the response.

Further to your enquiry, on behalf of East Lothian Council I am now able to provide our response; please refer to the PDF attachment.

Under the terms of this legislation, if you are unhappy with the way your request has been handled, you are entitled to request that we undertake an internal review. Please note, however, that both the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 and the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 only relate to the release of information. The Scottish Information Commissioner publishes the following guidance about internal reviews:

You can ask the authority to review its decision if it does not respond or you are unhappy with the way it has dealt with your request, for example by:

• refusing to give you the information
• failing to reply to you within the time limit allowed
• claiming the information is exempt
• failing to give you advice about, and help with, making your request
• asking you to pay a fee that you feel is unreasonable

We must receive such a request within 40 working days of the date of this notice. A request to review our decision must be in writing (e-mail is acceptable) or another permanent format. When writing, you should include your reasons as to why you are unhappy with our response and why you wish it to be reviewed. In order to comply with the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA), your reasons for dissatisfaction must relate to your information request only. Please address this request to:

Data Protection and Freedom of Information Compliance Officer
Licensing Administration and Democratic Services
East Lothian Council
John Muir House
Haddington
EH41 3HA

Email: [East Lothian Council request email]

We will then have 20 working days from the date we receive your request in order to complete our review and give you our decision. Please note that in some circumstances it may be necessary to appoint a senior officer not previously involved in this case to carry out the review.

If you are still not satisfied with our decision following the review process, then you may ask the Office of the Scottish Information Commissioner (OSIC) to investigate the matter. OSIC’s application form can be found at http://www.itspublicknowledge.info/YourR.... Alternatively, you may contact OSIC at:
