Traffic Order S331 - Beaufort Street

Closes 23 Feb 2022

Opened 12 Jan 2022

Overview

Following a request from residents, the Council has approved a Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy bid for secure cycle parking. 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. The proposal is to introduce one secure cycle hangar unit outside Nos. 9 to 16 Beaufort Mansions. 

Each on-street cycle hangar unit provides space for six residents’ bicycles. The spaces are rentable at a cost of £72 per year and would be available for rent on a first come, first served basis.

Why your views matter

We are seeking your views on conversion of three metres (10ft) of residents’ parking to a cycle hangar bay outside Nos. 9 to 16 Beaufort Mansions. This area will accommodate an on-street cycle hangar unit. Your comments will help us decide whether to proceed with the proposals as planned.

The section of residents’ parking is approximately 160 metres (525ft) - long enough for 32 cars. Shortening the bay by 3 metres (10ft) would leave 157 metres (515ft) remaining which would allow parking for 31 cars. The highest occupancy level in the most recent occupancy survey in September 2018, was the weekday evening occupancy, of 95 per cent. This equates to 30 out of 32 spaces occupied, and two spaces free. Therefore, the loss of one residents’ parking space should not adversely affect residents’ ability to park near their home.

Officers have looked to see if there is any single yellow line which could be converted to residents’ parking to mitigate the loss of residents’ parking, but were unable to find any suitable single yellow line for such a conversion in the area.
