To support the transition to low emission vehicles, the Government held a consultation in 2019 ( https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/electric-vehicle-chargepoints-in-residential-and-non-residential-buildings ) proposing changes to the Building Regulations to mandate the provision of electric vehicle charging points for new homes where there is an appropriate parking space. The consultation also proposed a minimum infrastructure provision for new non-residential buildings and existing buildings undergoing major renovation. My officials are working closely with colleagues from the Department for Transport to consider the outcomes of the public consultation, and the Government will respond in due course.
