Electric vehicle charging

There are a number of electric vehicle charging points across Enfield. You can find details of these by visiting websites such as Zap Map.

Our commitment

In the council’s Climate Action Plan there is a commitment to provide an additional 250 charging sockets for electric vehicles on public highways and public car parks by 2025.

This will be a rolling programme with delivery reliant on funding, so the number provided each year will vary.

The aim is to provide charging points where there is the greatest need. This includes areas covered by the extended Ultra-Low Emission Zone, where there are more people living without off-street parking, and where they support other carbon reduction interventions such as low traffic neighbourhoods.

To increase the number of charging points in the borough, we are trialling lamp column chargers. These are a simple and cost-effective way to increase our number of charging points, which can be fitted into existing streetlights where these are next to the kerb. For more information about this, view our Lamp column chargers FAQ (PDF, 228.58 KB).

If you would like to express an interest in a new electric vehicle charging point, send your address and any special circumstances (for example, if you are a taxi driver) by email to transportation@enfield.gov.uk.

In terms of trailing cables across the pavement, this is a trip hazard and makes it harder for those with disabilities and young children to use public space so is not something we support.

If you are looking to install a charging point on private land, you might be able to get a grant through the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme.
