Cycle Hangars October 2022

Closed 13 Nov 2022

Opened 3 Oct 2022

Overview

Enabling more cycling is one of the Council’s borough transport objectives. Making travel by bicycle convenient for residents is one way to improve our air quality, reduce traffic congestion, and work towards our goal for the borough to be carbon neutral by 2040.

The Council regularly receives requests from residents for on-street cycle hangar units. Residents living in flats experience particular difficulty storing bicycles at home and much existing cycle parking on-street does not offer high levels of security.

Cycle hangars are designed to provide more secure on-street cycle parking than short-stay parking such as Cyclehoops or Sheffield stands. Each on-street cycle hangar unit can provide space for six residents’ bicycles and can only be accessed using a key. The spaces are currently rentable at a cost of £72 per year and would be available for rent on a first come, first served basis.

Please note that:

  • the proposed Malton Road hangar is anticipated to be used by Malton Road depot staff and will not be publicly available.
  • the proposed location on Holland Road will be subject to TfL approval as it is located on a Red Route.

We are consulting on introducing new cycle hangars in the following locations:
