There aren’t currently any set rules on colours and size of EV charging bays other than dimensions should follow normal parking bays.
It is important to consider how many cars will be able to access a single charger. Ideally, each charge-point should be positioned to serve as many EV’s as possible. Most cables are between 4-8 meters long, so that let that be your guide when planning your layout.
When considering the style and design of your car park bays, it is essential that the EV bays are clearly differentiated from other parking bays by colour, signage and EV logos on the surface, so they are clearly visible to drivers and pedestrians.
