"Where I live is a row of terrace houses with no off road parking so charging an EV in the evening while parked on the road is not a option"

There is a company that has come up with a retrofit LED lighting package for street lights that also includes a plug to allow EV charging. The customer cord kit contains the comm package for access and billing. The switch to LED lighting can leave enough capacity for basic Level 1 charging. It's not massive, but could add up to 5 miles for every hour of charge or around 50 miles each night. That's likely enough for most living and working in the city. Other may have to augment their charging from time to time at a fast charger which companies like Shell are adding to their forecourts.
