Dear Wandsworth Borough Council,

Electric vehicles are being increasingly promoted as a low-carbon alternative to conventional combustion engine vehicles. Some English local authorities have therefore introduced measures to increase uptake of electric vehicles and associated technology (eg. charging infrastructure) within their local authority area such as providing free parking for electric vehicle owners, procuring electric vehicles as part of the local authority fleet or mandating charging points as part of all new development.

1a) What measures to date have been put in place by your local authority to encourage, increase and/or aid the uptake of electric vehicles and associated technology by residents within your local authority area? Please provide details of each measure.
1b) Are any future measures being considered by your local authority to encourage, increase and/or aid the uptake of electric vehicles and associated technology by residents within your local authority area? If so, please provide details of each measure.

2a) What measures to date have been put in place to encourage, increase and/or aid the uptake of electric vehicles and associated technology within your local authority fleet and amongst local authority staff? Please provide details of each measure.
2b) Are any future measures being considered to encourage, increase and/or aid the uptake of electric vehicles and associated technology within your local authority fleet and amongst local authority staff? If so, please provide details of each measure.

3a) What measures to date have been put in place by your local authority to encourage, increase and/or aid the uptake of electric vehicles and associated technology by businesses who are located within your local authority area? Please provide details of each measure.
3b) Are any future measures being considered by your local authority to encourage, increase and/or aid the uptake of electric vehicles and associated technology by businesses who are located within your local authority area? If so, please provide details of each measure.

4a) What planning measures have been put in place to encourage, increase and/or aid the uptake of electric vehicles within your local authority area? For example, do you require a set standard of EV charging spaces as part of a new residential or commercial development? Please provide details of each measure.
4b) Are any future planning measures being considered to encourage, increase and/or aid the uptake of electric vehicles within your local authority area? If so, please provide details of each measure.

Yours faithfully,

Thomas Pemberton
