EV Charge Points and Shared Vans for South Lambeth Businesses

29th June 2023 / Posted by Sefinat Otaru

CRP is working with Lambeth Council to make zero and low-emission transport more accessible to businesses in Streatham and West Norwood, as part of our Defra-funded programme Clean Air Logistics for London (CALL).

Lambeth Council has installed to new charge points in West Norwood on Norwood High Street and Knight’s Hill. The charge points are on each side of St. Luke’s Parish Church which sits between both streets. In the coming weeks, Lambeth will also install charge points convenient for businesses along Streatham High Road to use.

Following the successful shared electric van scheme for businesses implemented in Brixton four years ago, Lambeth will be creating a similar scheme this summer with shared electric vans for West Norwood and Streatham businesses.

CRP spoke with businesses in West Norwood about the charge point installations and the upcoming shared van scheme. Some businesses welcomed the news as they wanted a backup to their current means of transport. Others weren’t sure they would have a use for the shared vans but looked forward to having the scheme in place anyway. Interestingly, none of the businesses we spoke to felt that it would be useful during the ULEZ expansion as they had already prepared for it.
