Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 24 October 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how it will facilitate the charging of electric vehicles for people who live in tenement properties.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 7 November 2017

As set out in last month’s Programme for Government announcement, we plan to expand our electric charging infrastructure between now and 2022. This is one of the number of actions to meet the target to phase out the need for petrol and diesel vehicles by 2032. We have already made significant progress in the ChargePlace Scotland charging network. Over the coming months we will set out plans for developing this network, including the development of approaches to charging for people who live in tenement properties.
