- Haringey’s electric vehicle ambition
- Ultra Low Emission Vehicle Action Plan
- Initiative to encourage uptakes of EVs
To improve air quality in Haringey and reduce carbon, we are introducing new measures and projects associated with electric vehicles. This ranges from increasing public awareness on the benefits of electric vehicles and electrifying the council fleet, to installing more charging points with different power supplies to support different user needs and charging patterns.
In order to deliver this ambition, we have published the Ultra Low Emission Vehicle Action Plan, which seeks to address increasing transport emissions, growing electric vehicle demand and how to facilitate the switch to ultra low emission vehicles across all vehicle sectors.
Neighbourhoods of the Future
Haringey is one of six boroughs awarded the Neighbourhoods of the Future funding from TfL and Mayor of London to encourage the uptake of electric vehicles. The council selected the Wood Green shopping area for this initiative.
Find out more on this initiative and why the council chose Wood Green on our Neighbourhoods of the Future - Wood Green page.
Electric Vehicles Charging Points
As part of the council’s action plan to promote and encourage the uptake of electric vehicles, we are considering all options available to increase the number of Electric Vehicles charging points/bays in the borough. These are managed by various companies, which come with their own fees for charging. These include:
- on-street standard charging point
- lamp column charging points, and
- rapid charging points
At present there are a total of 43 charging points in the borough. Please visit the Electric Vehicles Charging Points page for more information.
Parking for electric vehicles
There are parking permit charges for residents and businesses parking within Controlled Parking Zones (CPZs) and charges also apply to electric vehicles. As an incentive, permits are charged at a lower rate for electric vehicles. Please visit our Permits price list page for more information on permit prices.
Electric vehicles (excluding hybrids and plug-in hybrids) can park free of charge in dedicated pay by phone bays in the borough, but the maximum stay and no return periods will remain applicable. This doesn’t apply to electric vehicles parked in any shared use bays (these are pay by phone bays that permit holders can park in). Parking is not free in any of the public car parks in the borough.
Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ)
The new Ultra Low Emission Zone came into force in Central London on 8 April 2019 - a Transport for London and Mayor of London initiative to improve air quality.
The ULEZ will be extended from 25 October 2021 to include the inner London area within the North and South Circular Roads. This will include all of Haringey and will impact of all cars that drive in and out of the zone.
For more information visit the Ultra Low Emission Zone page.
Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme
If you have an off-street parking area and you would like to instal a domestic charging point at your property, you could be eligible for a grant towards the installation cost of a charging point from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV).
