Decision Maker: Assistant Director - Legal and Democratic Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Between 2011 and 2014, Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) received Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) funding to install EV charge points across Hertfordshire, this included installation in 6 locations across Dacorum. On behalf of Dacorum HCC also managed the ongoing operation of these assets through a countywide contract with BP Chargemaster.
HCC have now made a decision that they will no longer provide or manage new electric vehicle charge points.


To approve the transfer of ownership of 6 no. electric vehicle charge points from Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) to Dacorum Borough Council.

Alternative options considered:

If the assets are not transferred then they will be removed, which will have a negative impact on the Council’s reputation as the assets are all located in council owned car parks and the public perception is that they are already owned by the Council and that it will be the Council’s decision to remove the assets.
