BVRLA responds to DfT consultation on the Future of Transport Regulatory Review for Zero Emission Vehicles
In the consultation the Government was seeking views on whether to introduce:
- a statutory obligation to plan for and provide charging infrastructure
- requirements to install chargepoints in non-residential car parks
- new powers to support the delivery of the Rapid Charging Fund
- requirements to improve the experience for electric vehicle consumers
At this stage the consultation is seeking views on whether the Government should have certain powers to intervene where necessary. If the powers are granted the Government would need to consult further on the detail.
The BVRLA’s response has highlighted where we are supportive of the powers being sought and what we feel may need to be implemented alongside such powers to make them effective or why we oppose Government seeking such powers.
