Wandsworth Council are expected to back plans for major expansion of electric vehicle infrastructure as part of plans to “embrace e-motoring”.
Councillors on the community services scrutiny committee are likely to approve proposals that could see at least one charging point introduced in every residential street in Wandsworth.
Town hall officials will be looking into the cost and logistics involved in providing the charging lamposts.
At the moment, Wandsworth has 35 charging points in 11 locations across the borough.
There are existing plans to install another 50 in 20 other locations by the end of the year.
Cllr Jonathan Cook said: “Providing as many charging points as possible is the key. We need to make the best use of existing infrastructure and make it as easy and as convenient as we can so that people are encouraged to switch to electric. But we don’t want to wait 20 years.
“We want to support this revolution now so that we can begin to cut harmful emissions, reduce pollution and improve the quality of the air we breathe.
Councillors on the scrutiny committee are expected to back a recommendation that instructs the Director of Environment and Community Services to “develop this emerging and ambitious strategy yet further, by examining the technical and financial potential to deliver a network of such significant scale and coverage that it might cover all residential streets of the borough and would very likely positively influence behaviour change in terms of resident and business decisions on vehicle ownership.”
The committee will meet to discuss the initiative on Wednesday, November 15.
