Traffic Order S333 - Nevern Road

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 at the southern end of the resident’s bay outside the flank wall of Nos. 52 to 53 Nevern Square, situated in Nevern Road.

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 at the southern end of the resident’s bay outside the flank wall of Nos. 52 to 53 Nevern Square, situated in Nevern Road. 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 16 metres (52ft), long enough for three cars. Shortening the bay by 3 metres (10ft) would leave 13 metres (42ft) remaining which would allow parking for two cars. The highest occupancy level in the most recent occupancy survey in September 2018, was the weekday overnight occupancy, of 100 per cent.

However, the bank of residents’ parking from Nos. 52 to 26 Nevern Square is less than 20 metres (65ft) away and is approximately 112 metres (367ft) long, with enough space for 22 cars. The weekday overnight occupancy for this bay was 81 per cent, which equates to 18 of 22 spaces occupied, with four 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.
