On-Street Residential Scheme

The purpose of the Scheme is to increase the availability of on-street charging points in residential streets where off-street parking is not available, thereby ensuring that off-street parking is not a pre-requisite for realising the benefits of owning a plug-in electric vehicle. The Scheme also has benefits for wider local communities; ever larger proportions of plug-in vehicles on our streets will support air quality improvements and lower noise pollution.


How it works

  • The maximum amount OLEV will fund per chargepoint is £7,500
  • This funding is available to Local Authorities
  • The funding available is for 75% of the capital costs of procuring and installing the chargepoint.
  • Applicants will need to secure a minimum of 25% of capital funds via sources other than OLEV funding.


“Millions of homes in the UK do not have off-street parking, so this funding is important to help local councils ensure that all their residents can take advantage of this revolution,” .
— Jesse Norman, The Transport Minister
