Do new-build commercial buildings require EV charge points?

New legislation from the UK Government has been announced to help improve the public's access to EV charge points before the 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel vehicles.


What does this mean for housing and commercial developers?

Part S regulations require the following conditions to be met:

  • New homes with parking must have an EV charge point

  • Houses established from a change of use must have an EV charge point, if they have parking

  • Renovated buildings for residential use with more than 10 parking spaces must have one or more charge points per dwelling

  • New non-residential buildings with more than 10 parking spaces must have one charge point per five spaces

  • Renovated non-residential buildings with more than 10 parking spaces must have one charge point per five spaces

What do I need to do next?

Developers must make plans to install EV charge points in all new-build properties, both residential and commercial, not only to keep up with government guidelines but also to meet the UK's sustainability guidelines.
