Charge Point Accessibility For Disabled/Motability Drivers
I am e-mailing you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. I am after information relating to electric charge point access for disabled/motability drivers. If the request proves too broad, or exceeds the allocated time allowance for an FOI request, could you please focus on questions 2, 3, 4 and 5 as priority and inform me? In particular, I am after the following information: Q1. How many electric vehicle public charging outlets or chargepoints have you installed in your local authority to date that are classed as on-street residential chargepoints, located in residential streets or areas? Please provide figures to the nearest possible date and include the month and the year the figures correspond to. Q2. For Question 1, how many on-street residential charging outlets or chargepoints have you installed to date in your local authority that have been adapted specifically for disabled users? Please provide figures to the nearest possible date and include the month and year the figures correspond to. Q3. For Question 1, how many on-street public charging outlets or chargepoints are positioned in disabled parking bays? Q4. For Question 1, how many of the on-street residential chargepoints in your area adapted for disabled users conform to the BSI's latest accessible charging specification (PAS 1899:2022)? Please provide figures to the nearest possible date and include the month and year the figures correspond to. Q5. Does your electric vehicle charging infrastructure strategy include specific considerations for elderly and / or disabled users? Q6. Do you provide any additional support for disabled or elderly users wanting to access public chargepoints for electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles, such as charge-point assistants or roaming charging services? Q7. Do you support or provide marketing tools to residents to make finding charge point services easier, such as charge point booking or journey planning technologies?
