Futuristic electric car charging points may be coming to parking spaces across Southwark as around 50 planning applications have been made.

If approved, some 150 charging points resembling bollards could pop up around the borough as part of a bid to encourage electric car use and reduce air pollution.

With one already on The Cut, the scheme, called Source London, is seeking to have 400 points around London by the end of the year.

Ben Bulmer, of Bluepoint, the operator of Source London, said: “You’ll be able to use them 24/7 on the street and not hidden away in some multi-storey car park.”

The network is monitored constantly, allowing users to know when one is free and the runners of the scheme know when one needs fixing.

There are currently 400 members of the scheme in Southwark, where they pay £2 an hour for a session.
