Traffic Order S358 - Addison Road

Closes 27 Jul 2022

Opened 15 Jun 2022

Overview

The Council has received requests from residents 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 convert three metres (10ft) of residents’ parking to cycle hangar bay in Addison Road, from a point 23 metres (75ft) south of the vehicular entrance to Woodsford Square to a point 26 (85ft) metres south of the vehicular entrance to Woodsford Square. This would be the first three metres of this residents’ parking bay.

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.

This section of residents’ parking is approximately 21 metres (69ft) long enough space for four cars. Shortening the bay by 3 metres (10ft) would leave 18 metres (59ft) remaining which would allow parking for three cars. The highest occupancy level in the most recent occupancy survey in September 2018, was the Weekday Evening and Weekday Overnight occupancy, of 100 per cent. However, residents’ permit numbers have fallen by six percent since the time of the 2018 survey.
