All the on-street chargepoints will be operated by Joju/ Mer and will be available through How To Charge Your EV With Mer.

The chargepoint, Alfen Twin, is capable of charging two cars at the same time.

Some of the charge points are Standard 7kW, most are Fast 22kW.

LED lights show whether the charge point is:

  • available for use,
  • out of order,
  • currently charging a vehicle.

Allocated parking spaces

We will only be allocating one dedicated parking space per charge point initially. This will be reviewed regularly to see if a second dedicated parking bay is required.

If you feel another parking bay is required, please contact parking.services@iow.gov.uk.

Request a charge point

Make a request for a chargepoint on your street by completing the online Chargepoint Request form (arcgis.com).

Parking restrictions

The parking restrictions mean that the parking bays are restricted to ‘Electric Vehicle Charging Only’ at all times. The maximum stay of four hours will apply from 8am until 8pm with a no return period of four hours. A vehicle can stay in the bay from 8pm to 8am, allowing for an overnight charge. Failure to follow these restrictions may lead to a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

The exception is the dedicated EV charging bays on Quay Street. For non-permit holders parking in the bays is restricted to 2 hours, no return within 2 hours, between the hours of 8am to 6pm. Overnight parking is unrestricted. For Newport on-street resident permit holders, the bays are restricted to 4 hours, no return within 2 hours, between the hours of 8am to 6pm. Overnight parking is unrestricted.

Parking in an electric vehicle parking bay without charging a vehicle will be deemed a parking contravention and liable for a PCN. Parking in a bay past the time limit will also be liable for a PCN.

If the dedicated parking bay has been ICED. ICED means a regular petrol or diesel vehicle that doesn’t need electricity is parking in the space. Please report this to parking.services@iow.gov.uk.
