Further details following the initial post on our website on this subject and reflecting subsequent discussions at the 8 November NTBCC meeting on the Council’s proposal for installing Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points across Edinburgh – which NTBCC and most residents welcome in principle but have some concerns about the precise locations being proposed.
The Council has recently issued a draft Traffic Regulation Order, TRO/21/24 , for the the initial stage of consultation on the installation of on-street electric vehicle (EV) charging places on 11 streets across the City. These include placing EV charging points in Montgomery Street, Kings Road, Sheriff Brae, Fettes Avenue, Comely Bank Terrace, India Street, Heriot Row, Stewart Terrace, Thirlestane Road, Maxwell Street and East London Street.
Three of these streets fall within our area – being East London Street, India Street and Heriot Row. A further installation is planned for Montgomery Street (4 chargers with 8 bays), just outside NTBCC’s area.
The proposed locations for these charging points within NTBCC”s area can be seen from the reproduced PDFs below . (Click the thumbnails to see the full-size PDFs.)
East London Street
The proposed locations for the remainder of the EV charging points in this initial phase across Edinburgh can be accessed here
NTBCC intend to submit comments on this TRO (covering the 3 installations within NTBCC’s area) following several concerns being raised by residents and residents’ associations – the deadline for submitting comments as part of the initial consultation being 15 November.
If you have comments on this proposal that you would want the community council to take into account, please contact us via this link.
There will be a further opportunity to register your comments before the final details are agreed.
