Traffic Order S378 - St Marks Road

Closes 27 Jul 2022

Opened 15 Jun 2022

Overview

The Council is proposing the installation of a cycle hangar and the planting of a new tree in St Mark’s Road. The Council is committed to further greening our borough, and residents living in flats experience particular difficulty storing bicycles at home, with much existing cycle parking on-street not offering high levels of security. 

The traffic order therefore has two parts: 

A) Conversion of three metres (10ft) of residents’ parking outside No. 91 St Mark’s Road to a cycle hangar bay.

B) Conversion of the first two metres (7ft) of residents’ parking outside No. 91 St Mark’s Road to double yellow line and kerb build-out for a tree pit

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 17 metres (56ft) long with space for three cars. Reducing the bay by five metres (16ft) would leave 12 metres (39ft) and leave space for two cars. The highest occupancy level for this bay in the most recent survey in September 2018, was 100 per cent during weekdays overnight. Residents’ parking permit numbers have decreased by six percent since the survey was completed.
