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.
