Rental e-Bike Cycle Parking Bays

Closed 17 May 2023

Opened 5 Apr 2023


Rental e-bikes have become a regular sight on borough streets and can be a convenient alternative to public transport or driving. The number of trips made by rental e-bikes has increased greatly in Kensington and Chelsea over the last few years.

However, we recognise that parking of rental e-bikes on narrower footways can cause a nuisance to residents, particularly where the footway is obstructed for those using wheelchairs or buggies. The Council is therefore proposing to provide dedicated parking bays in appropriate locations across the borough for use by e-bike hire operators and their customers. This will allow us to bring more control to where bikes are parked and reduce the impact on pedestrians.

In order to introduce these bays in the carriageway, we need to make changes to our traffic management orders. The locations of the proposed on-street parking bays can be found in the notice below:
