To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, how much funding has been allocated for electric vehicle charging infrastructure to each local authority in England in the financial year 2020-21 (a) in total and (b) by the scheme through which it was issued.
1 July 2021
Funding spent on electric vehicle charging infrastructure through the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) and the Workplace charging Schemes (WCS) are provided to households and business respectively rather than being allocated to local authorities, these schemes are demand led.
Funding for the On-street Residential Chargepoint Scheme (ORCS) is allocated to local authorities. The ORCS allocated over £6.5m to English local authorities for charging infrastructure in the 2020-21 financial year.
