I had a quick look at the National Charge Point Registry data a while
ago. I got as far as plotting a map showing both the OSM charge points
and those from the Registry:
https://osm.mathmos.net/chargepoint/progress/ . Unfortunately, the
Registry data seemed rather incomplete, and not always accurate. It
also wasn't clear exactly how to do matching between the two datasets.
I then got distracted by other things.

Due to the incompleteness of the Registry, there'd be no way to flag
OSM charge point objects that shouldn't be there. But if I could sort
out some way of matching between the two datasets, I would then be
able to add the charge points in the Registry that are "missing" in
OSM to https://osm.mathmos.net/survey/ .
