Electric Vehicle Charging Points

The Council wants to increase capacity for electric vehicle (EV) charging in the city, and is therefore introducing Source London infrastructure, which allows double-headed chargers – meaning two vehicles can access the charger at the same time.

Westminster already has over 2,400 charge points across the city, made up of slow, fast and rapid chargers. TfL also have a network across their roads.

The new electric vehicle charging points will offer motorists a fast 22kW AC charge option, which can fully charge a vehicle in four hours. The new bays will therefore be short stay bays, with a maximum stay of four hours and no return on the same day.

To make space for these new bays, there will be some changes to kerbside layout, for car club bays, shared-use parking and pay-by-phone bays.

In the Forum’s area the following changes are proposed:

  • Park West Place west side – creating two new EV bays from existing car club bays.
  • Norfolk Crescent near the entrance to Cambridge Square – replacing two shared use bays with two car club bays.
  • Sussex Place on the south side of Gloucester Square – creating two new EV bays from nearby shared-use bays.
