Can I put a charging cable from my property across a footpath so that I can charge from home?

Question:
Can I put a charging cable from my property across a footpath so that I can charge from home?
Answer:

You can only charge your vehicle on your own driveway, or on someone else's land with their permission.

Staffordshire County Council does not permit any cable to be placed across the public highway. A power cable trailing across a footway is a potential trip hazard (this includes using a cable protector or ramp) for disabled and vulnerable people. If someone tripped and injured themselves, you could be prosecuted and there may be liability under civil law.
