Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The rollout of a publicly owned and managed EV infrastructure to support increased demand has faced some challenges that we continue to learn from. The costs of upgrading power to support the EV chargers together with identifying suitable land and car parks that the council own are the main prohibitors for extending the rollout beyond the current phases.


Trafford is therefore, as part of the continuation of the project looking at trials of on street charging solutions funded by LEVI and CRSTS grant funding opportunities as contained in this report.


Recognition of gaps in infrastructure in some of the wards in Trafford will remain a priority to ensure there is a fair distribution of available infrastructure across the Borough taking account of the power restrictions we currently face.



1)    That phase 2 of the EV of charge point rollout in Trafford which includes on street charging options and trials as contained in the report be approved.


2)    That the progress made to date on EV charge point rollout be noted.


3)    That the delegation of authority to the Corporate Director of Place to negotiate, approve and finalise any agreements or documents which may be required to implement this decision be approved.


4)    That the delegation of authority to Director of Legal and Governance to enter into any documents required to implement this decision be approved.
