Decision details


Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


(1) That the outcome of the GMCA Contract with Be.EV (Iduna) relating to EV charge points in Trafford be noted.


(2) That the approach for the rollout of EV charge points in Trafford, as outlined in the report, be approved.


(3) That the entering into of leases with Be.EV for rollout of EV charge points across Trafford be approved in principle and that authority be delegated to the Corporate Director of Place to finalise the terms of the leases.


(4) That authority be delegated to the Corporate Director of Place, in consultation with the Corporate Director for Governance and Community Strategy and the Director of Finance and Systems and relevant Executive Members, to enter into negotiations and agree future investment opportunities for rollout of EV charging points and hubs through JV or other partnership vehicle.


(5) That authority be delegated to the Corporate Director of Governance and Community Strategy to complete any documents required to give effect to the proposals contained in the report.

Reasons for the decision:

To inform Members and seek approval to utilise the Be.EV contract awarded by GMCA/TfGM to roll out additional EV infrastructure in Trafford and allow the Corporate Director of Place to develop a model for a joint funded or public owned infrastructure relating to EV that has the potential to raise revenue.

Alternative options considered:

A range of initiatives and options are suggested to be explored further, as included within the current report and in the report made in December 2020. The other alternative is to decide not fit EV Charging units within Trafford and rely on TfGM and / or private initiatives to do it. However, this would not support the Council’s clean air initiatives or ambition to accelerate EV rollout in Trafford.
