Traffic Order S348 - Elgin Crescent

Closed 23 Mar 2022

Opened 9 Feb 2022


The Council has received requests from residents for an on-street cycle hangar unit in Elgin Crescent. 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 opposite no. 139 Elgin Crescent, reusing a Car Club bay that is no longer required by the operator.

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 reusing a Car Club bay (measuring 5 metres (16ft)) that is no longer required. The proposal has two components:

  1. Conversion of three metres (10ft) of Car Club bay (No. 225) to a cycle hangar bay opposite no. 139 Elgin Crescent
  1. Conversion of two metres (7ft) of Car Club bay (No. 225) to resident’s parking opposite no. 139 Elgin Crescent

Your comments will help us decide whether to proceed with the proposals as planned.

 The cycle hangar would replace an existing Car Club Bay, which is no longer needed by the scheme operator, measuring five metres in length. The cycle hangar requires three metres of space and so the second half of this proposal converts the remaining two metres of bay to resident’s parking.

The residents’ bay is currently 69 metres (226 ft) long with space for 14 vehicles. Adding two metres to this bay will provide more space for the existing vehicles to park but will not add any more capacity to the bay. This residents’ bay had average occupancy levels of 77 per cent (3 spaces free) on weekday afternoons and 100 per cent overnight on weekdays, in the most recent parking occupancy survey in September 2018.
