York Road - cycle parking consultation

Closed 5 Feb 2020

Opened 9 Jan 2020

Overview

The council has an existing bikehangar installed on York Road, Brentford, near to the junction with Brook Lane North. This bikehangar is fully subscribed with a waiting list for spaces, so we are therefore proposing to install a second hangar in order to meet this demand.

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.

As shown on the plan below, the proposed location of the bikehangar is at the eastern end of York Road, opposite 52 York Road, and adjacent to the existing hangar currently installed. The hanger 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 via an annual grant allocation from Transport for London to increase cycle parking provision in the borough, and 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.

We welcome your feedback on the proposals, and would ask that you complete our short online survey to tell us what you think about them.

If you require any information in an alternative format, please let us know by emailing us at traffic@hounslow.gov.uk quoting ‘York Road Bike Hangar’ by Wednesday 5th February 2020. Please do also contact us if you would be interested in renting a space within the bikehangar. 

Why We Are Consulting

The purpose of this consultation is to give you an opportunity to assess the proposal before indicating whether you would support the installation of the bikehangar.

Once you are satisfied that you have sufficient information I would be grateful if you would complete the short survey below by no later than 5 February 2020.

What Happens Next

Thank you for submitting comments, following the end of consultation, and once the results have been analysed, an outcome will be placed on this webpage in due course.
