Traffic Order S373 - Lennox Gardens

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 the southernmost three metres (10ft) of Resident’s Parking to a cycle hangar bay, adjacent to No. 52 Lennox Gardens.

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 conversion of the southernmost three metres (10ft) of Resident’s Parking to a cycle hangar bay, adjacent to No. 52 Lennox Gardens. This area will accommodate an on-street cycle hangar unit. Your comments will help us decide whether to proceed with the proposals as planned.

This section of residents’ parking is 17 metres (56ft) long with space for three cars. Reducing the bay by three metres (10ft) would leave 14 metres (46ft) and leave space for two cars. The occupancy level for this bay in the most recent survey in September 2018 was 100 per cent during each time period. However, residents’ parking permit numbers have decreased by six percent since the survey was completed.
