Traffic Order S369 - Eardley Crescent

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. There are two proposals for Eardley Crescent: 

A) Conversion of the first three metres (10ft) of residents’ parking to a cycle hangar bay outside 1 Eardley Crescent. This hangar bay would accommodate a cycle hangar unit. 

B) Installation of a cycle hangar on the footway, against the flank wall of 51 Warwick Road, situated on Eardley Crescent. 

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.  

Why your views matter

We are seeking your views on the conversion of the first three metres (10ft) of residents’ parking to a cycle hangar bay outside 1 Eardley Crescent, and installation of a further cycle hangar on the footway, against the flank wall of 51 Warwick Road, situated on Eardley Crescent.

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

The section of residents’ parking beginning outside 1 Eardley Crescent is 206 metres (676ft) long with space for 41 cars. Reducing the bay by three metres (10ft) would leave 203 metres (666ft) and space for 40 cars. The highest occupancy level for this bay in the most recent survey in September 2018, was 90 per cent during weekday evenings (four spaces free). Residents’ parking permit numbers have decreased by six percent since the survey was completed.
