Do I need planning permission for an EV charging point?

In most circumstances, planning permission isn’t a necessity when installing an EV charging point onto your premises. Residential areas and areas lawfully used for off-street parking do not require planning permission, but if your EV charging points are being used commercially it’s always worth checking with your local council.
