Car Charging Point for Disabled Person

    Is there a standard that I can review/reference for a charging point for a disabled person/parking spot?

    Here is one dedicated. Not aware of a specific standard.

    There is one disabled only charger in Dundrum see plugshare

    At Ionity one space seems to be wheelchair friendly, but the charger itself is probably not very friendly screen height wise. You can see the flat kerb below

    I am not aware of any standards. In reality every charging space should be disabled friendly as a bigger space is needed as different cars need to access the charger from different sides. Issue I see for disabled users is plugging into AC chargers tend to be high up and many chargers are on a concrete pedestal and screens are high up.
