Properties with off-street parking (a drive or garage)

EV charging cables and pavements

Under Section 162 of the Highways Act 1980 it is an offence to place or run a cable across a highway and may lead to enforcement action. Therefore, it is not permitted for cables (with or without cable tunnels) to trail from your home across the highway to your car as it will cause a safety hazard for pedestrians. Further, a cable trailing in such a manner can limit accessibility of the footway on people with disabilities.

We recognise the difficulties for people living in flats or terraced houses without off street parking. To help with this we are working to increase the numbers of chargers at other locations.
