Braybourne Drive - cycle parking consultation

Closed 26 Feb 2020

Opened 29 Jan 2020

Overview

The council has recently installed several bikehangars across the borough. Bikehangars offer secure cycle parking for residents in areas where the ability to safely store bikes within a property, or the front/rear garden, is limited. This is part of the council’s commitment to encourage more sustainable forms of transport for daily journeys.

The council has received additional funding from Transport for London to support the implementation of more bikehangars in the borough, with Braybourne Drive identified as a potential location.

A total of four bikehangars are being proposed in the locations shown on the attached plan, two bikehangars are proposed at each location.

  • The first location is at the western end of Braybourne Drive, on the northern side of the road, near to the entrance with Nos 1-40 Braybourne Drive.
  • The second location is at the eastern end of Braybourne Drive, on a section of land between Braybourne Drive and Stags Way.

A bikehangar is 2.5m long and just under 2.0m wide and each hangar provides storage for 6 bikes. Further information about the product can be found at: http://www.cyclehoop.com/product/cycle-shelters-and-canopies/bike-hangar/.

The council covers the installation cost of new bikehangars and provides a 50% subsidy on the cost of renting spaces. The annual rental fee per year is therefore £36 per space, plus a deposit for a key (£25). The allocation of spaces is managed by the council’s contractor, Cyclehoop, who also look after ongoing maintenance. If you wish to rent a space, please do contact us and we will provide you with further information about the next steps.

We welcome your views on the enclosed proposals – please could you complete the short online survey found below by Wednesday 26th February.
