We do have something like that here. It's called "eminent domain".

The difference is that you can fight eminent domain.  I don't think you can do that in the UK.  In the US, the government has to use the land they take for public use and has to give "just compensation" to the landowner.  If they don't value your property and the harm taking it will cause to the rest of the land, it can be challenged that way.  They have to have a valid reason for condemnation of your property and be an approved or allowed governmental group/agency to be able to have such authority as well.  If a local, state, or federal statute doesn't include a specific plan that is wanted for your land, that is one of the reasons you can fight it in court.  The government level in question also had to get the authority/authorization for enacting it properly.  Property isn't always condemned to be taken either.  If you can defend in court that your land is not necessary for the project/use that it is being sought for, you can also defeat eminent domain.

For terraced streets (and maybe blocks of flats), it ain’t gonna work. Confused

Even if you convert streetlights, they might only be on one side of the street.

Maybe we’ll need charging lay-bys or something similar.

Home charging is definitely a blocker to the take up of electric cars or plug in hybrids (by the way there are other type of hybrids that don’t need to be plugged in which would get around the charging issue; but the sale of hybrids are time limited like petrol/diesel cars are).

Looking at a few of the charging companies there is no clear solution yet but community charging areas (i.e. the lay-bys you mention) are one idea (Audi have announced they are going to be trialling these in Germany; Tesla have a wide range of charging points although these are generally at service areas).

Adding charge points to residential roads is also likely but will take a long time. My council allows you to request one but makes it clear that they allocate them on demand. So why would they allocate one to your street if you don’t yet have an electric car, and why would get an electric car if there isn’t a charge point (chicken and egg anyone?)?.

Availability of electric cars is just at the tipping point now whereby every manufacturer is launching several in quick succession but without the charging infrastructure their success be limited.
