Traffic Order S355 - Chesterton Road

Closes 27 Jul 2022

Opened 15 Jun 2022

Overview

Following a successful Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy bid from a resident for secure cycle parking, the Council is proposing installation of a cycle hangar on Chesterton Road. Residents living in flats experience particular difficulty storing bicycles at home and much of the existing cycle parking on-street does not offer high levels of security.

Additionally, the car club operator in Chesterton Road, Ubeeqo, has now moved to a flexible scheme that does not require fixed parking bays, so the Council no longer needs to provide designated bays for this operator.

This proposal therefore consists of two parts:

A) Conversion of three metres (10ft) of single yellow line (hours of control Monday to Friday 8.30am to 6.30pm and Saturday 8.30am to 1.30pm) outside the flank wall of No. 34 St Mark’s Road, situated in Chesterton Road, to a cycle hangar bay.

B) Conversion of five metres (16ft) of Car Club bay No. 241 to residents’ parking outside No. 155 Chesterton Road.

Each on-street cycle hangar unit provides space for six residents’ bicycles. Similar bike hangar spaces in the borough are currently rentable at a cost of £72 per year and if this unit went ahead, the spaces would be available for rent on a first come, first served basis. 

An example of a green bicycle hangar at the kerbsidePictured above is an example of a cycle hangar. The design can differ depending on the outcome of procurement.

The car club bay is adjacent to residents’ parking and would increase the length of the residents’ bay from 98 metres (322ft) to 103 metres (338ft). In the most recent occupancy survey, in September 2018, the weekday evening occupancy levels for the bay were 86 percent.
