THOUSANDS of electric vehicle charging points will be installed across the UK as part of the new legislation.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the plan Electric Car today (November 22) at the annual conference of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI).
The new plans will see up to 145,000 new charging points installed across the UK each year, with motorists able to use them at home, supermarkets and workplaces.
Under this initiative, charging points will be installed in newly built homes, helping to drivers to charge their cars.
Building regulations will require developers to install charging points on new buildings from next year.
It comes as the government announced plans to stop selling new petrol and diesel cars from 2030.
Britain will now pave the way to leading a greener environment and creating more jobs in the economy, the Prime Minister said.
To date, the government has supported the installation of 250,000 charging points at home and work.
The new plans will step up efforts to encourage UK motorists to use electricity.
As with new homes and non-residential buildings, any property undergoing major renovations with more than 10 parking spaces will also be required to install EV charging points.
