The total number of On-Street households in Great Britain has predictably remained relatively stable, increasing slightly from 9,651,595 to 9,777,254.
This accounts for 35% of all households, or 32% of households outside of London, very similar percentages to 2020.
National Coverage, the percentage of On-Street households within 5 minutes’ walk of a public EV Charger has risen from 12% to 17%, an increase of 42%.
This increase is relatively consistent across all council types, with Districts increasing by 57% (7% to 11%), London Boroughs 46% (41% to 60%), Metropolitan Districts by 40% (10% to 14%) and Unitaries by 45% (11% to 16%).
The On-Street challenge is often just a pronounced in rural areas as it is in urban, and our published data covers all council types, but it is worth understanding the differences between our major cities.
We would always expect a difference between London and some of the less affluent areas of Britain, but the coverage difference between 60% and 13% for the rest of the country is stark.
