Survey – Electric Vehicle Charging Points in Waltham Abbey
Waltham Abbey residents have approached us to look at the lack of Electric Vehicle Charging Points in our town.
We’ve written to councillors at Town, District and County levels requesting a meeting to discuss the issue but we’d like to see how many people are affected and how much support there is for increasing the number of charging points.
Could you please complete this quick survey to help us find out?

Electric Vehicle Charging in Waltham Abbey
I am writing on behalf of Waltham Abbey residents who have approached me about the lack of Electric Vehicle Charging Points in our public car parks.
As you are aware, electric vehicles are increasingly popular and reduce CO2, particulate and noise pollution, making our global and local environment cleaner and more pleasant.
However, research by the AA and RAC shows that eight out of 10 drivers see the lack of charging points as a stumbling block to them buying an electric vehicle.
Back in July 2018 Chris Grayling promised extra investment in charging infrastructure as part of the Road to Zero report.
Although electric vehicles don’t reduce the excessive amount of traffic on our roads, and the non-renewable nature of the majority of our energy supply remains a major concern, they are a very welcome step towards keeping our towns cleaner and healthier.
I would be grateful for an opportunity to meet to discuss this important issue further.
