CLEAN AIR ZONE – The Jewellery Quarter Electric Vehicle Charging Points

Following our report in last month’s magazine on The Clean Air Zone, we received many enquiries from readers about adequate provision of charging points for electric vehicles and, of course, the necessary parking bays.

We contacted Cllr Ian Ward direct – Leader of Birmingham City Council, and he kindly replied as follows:

  • The Council are in the final stages of procuring an EV charge point network development partner.
  • A city-wide charge point network will be deployed from Autumn 2019 until Spring 2021.
  • The Jewellery Quarter will be included within the plans for EV charge point network deployment.
  • Specific locations will be agreed according to electric grid capacity,
  • BID/stakeholder preference and need and Highways approval if on public land and TRO (Traffic Regulation Order) approvals/or landowner permission and lease arrangements if on private land.
  • The Council will proceed to this next level of localised specification once the provider has been procured for deployment within the timescale mentioned.

Council Planning Officers across the city are seeking a minimum of 10% of on-site parking provision to be provided with electric vehicle charging points on all developments, including sites within the Jewellery Quarter.’
