Amending Building Regulations and new approved document require electric vehicle charge points in new buildings

The Building Regulations etc (Amendment) (England) (No 2) Regulations 2021 (SI 2021/1392) were laid before Parliament on 15 December 2021 and come into force on 15 June 2022.

The regulations will require:

  • New homes with on-site parking to have an EV charge point.
  • Residential buildings undergoing major renovation that will have over ten on-site parking spaces after renovation to have at least one charge point for each dwelling with associated parking and cable routes in all spaces without charge points.
  • New non-residential buildings with over ten on-site parking spaces to have at least one charge point and cable routes for one in five spaces.
  • Non-residential buildings undergoing a major renovation that will have over ten on-site parking spaces after renovation to have at least one charge point and cable routes for one in five spaces.

The Regulations make the changes set out in the government's November 2021 response to its July 2019 consultation on new requirements for installing electric vehicle (EV) charge points in new buildings in England.
