The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) has invited local authorities to submit applications to the On-Street Residential Grant Scheme. The Scheme provides funding to increase the availability of plug-in vehicle charging infrastructure for those who do not have access to off-street parking. 

The Scheme is intended to satisfy the current or future demand of residents which are unable to charge at home due to a lack of off street parking i.e. the funding is only available to support the installation of charging points for electric vehicles parking on street. See link below for details:

The key purpose of this survey is to better understand current and future demand for on street charging infrastructure from Isle of Wight residents, and to understand which locations might be best suited to new charging infrastructure. Isle of Wight Council is keen to submit an application should sufficient demand be evidenced through this survey. 

Responses to the survey are anonymous, but, if you are considering purchasing an electric vehicle in the next six months, we request your name, address and contact details so that we can assess locations where on street charging infrastructure would be most useful. 

Thank you for your interest in the survey, which should only take a few minutes to complete.
