The pan London membership scheme — Source London

Electric vehicle drivers do not have to register with the Council directly to use the charging bays. Instead, anyone who is a member of the Source London scheme and holds a valid access tag and cable can use our charging points in accordance with the local parking controls.

Initially members are being charged a flat fee membership which is expected to eventually move to Pay-As-You-Go when membership reaches justifiable numbers.

Any vehicle that is licensed with the DVLA as a pure electric or a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle can join the scheme. This includes motorbikes, cars, vans, trucks and scooters.

Become a member 

To become a member and join the Source London scheme visit the Source London scheme website to register (an annual membership fee is payable).


Currently standard parking fees are applicable for the two charging points in Council controlled public car parks (Bentley Road and Britannia Leisure Centre ). The rest are free.

The long-term aim of the Council will be to charge for parking in all EV charging point bays during CPZ hours in order to discourage local car journeys and to encourage turnover of bays. No charge is made for electricity used at electric vehicle charging points.

Parking controls and time restrictions

All electric vehicle charging bays will be EV recharging only at all times (24 hours a day, 365 days a year) and where parking charges are in place then controlled parking hours will apply. Maximum stay is currently 4 hours with no return within 2 hours however this is subject to change dependent upon location of the bay.

Resident’s parking permit discount

Residents and businesses in Hackney that have electric vehicles can park for free in their own controlled parking zone areas but still need to apply for a free parking permit. The permit is free if you apply online, or £10 if you apply in person or by post. Apply or renew resident parking permit .

Benefits of electric vehicles

a reduction in emissions compared with conventional internal combustion engined vehicles

Electric vehicle (EV) technology addresses concerns relating to energy security and dependency on imported oil

Transport is responsible for 22% of CO2 emissions in London of which road transport modes comprise 81% of this total. If electric vehicles are powered by renewably sourced/green tariff electricity then electric vehicles will help combat climate change

Electric vehicles are significantly quieter for city driving as there is minimal engine and transmission noise. This is particular the case where they replace stop-starting diesels and at night when ambient noise levels are lower.
