Response to consultation on electric vehicle charging points:
Our general approach to the issue of electric vehicle charging points was determined from an email discussion on a list with 256 members during June 2010.
One of the aims of CCC is to encourage people to give up their cars in favour of walking and cycling. The encouragement of car ownership and use makes the roads less safe for cyclists and pedestrians.
As London cyclists we want not just less air pollution in London but also fewer cars (of any sort). Electric cars achieve the first but not the second.
We therefore oppose any proposal that does not reduce the amount of parking for petrol cars. We are neutral concerning other proposals.
