Thank you for your feedback on potential locations for pole-mounted Electric Vehicle chargers. Feedback provided will help us compile a list of locations that can be assessed for suitability and technical compliance for installation. Not all locations suggested may be suitable due to a range of technical factors.
These will include technical constraints such as the available capacity of the electrical network to charge vehicles, and consideration of parking restrictions and availability. Council
pole-mounted EV chargers will be announced on the Electric Vehicles page on our main website.
You can read about what we heard from the community between 27 November - 17 December 2023 in the Engagement Summary Report or in the document library on the left.
Have your say on locations of kerbside power-pole electric vehicle chargers!
We are currently investigating utility/power-pole mounted charging technologies to be implemented in our municipality and are shortlisting locations that will be further assessed for suitability.
Council would like to hear where you would like to see kerbside power-pole electric vehicle (EV) charging in the City of Port Phillip.
From 27 November to 17 December 2023, you can share kerbside locations across Port Phillip (residential, near parks, reserves, etc) suitable for power-pole mounted EV chargers.
Kerbside power-pole chargers are more compact than the larger fast-chargers installed in shopping centres and off-street car parks, and can be installed on existing street power poles next to on-street car parking spaces. EV owners can charge their EV for a fee by parking in one of these car parking spaces.
Don’t miss your chance to share your suggestions for conveniently located EV chargers in your neighbourhood.
City of Port Phillip actively supports the uptake of EVs in the community. We will continue to work with EV infrastructure providers to explore opportunities and new technologies to grow Port Phillip’s EV charging infrastructure.
Council recognises the increase in demand for EV charging infrastructure, the benefits associated with adoption of EVs such as lower vehicle emissions, lower air and noise pollution and is supportive of increasing City of Port Phillip’s EV charging network.

Your suggestions will help us compile a list of locations that can be further analysed for suitability and technical compliance for installation. Not all locations suggested may be suitable due to a range of technical factors.
These will include technical constraints such as the available capacity of the electrical network to charge vehicles, and also consideration of parking restrictions and availability.
At this stage, Council is gathering feedback from the community for potential installation of pole-mounted EV chargers. Council is working with partner Intellihub, who received a grant from the Victorian Government to investigate installation of 100 EV chargers mounted on power-poles across three inner-city local government areas, including the City of Port Phillip.
