Traffic Order S379 - Vicarage Gate

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 over-night security. The proposal has two parts relating to future use of one existing resident's parking bay: 

A) Conversion of three metres (ten feet) of residents’ parking to a cycle hangar bay opposite No. 7B Vicarage Gate.

B) Conversion of two metres (seven feet) of residents’ parking to an on-carriageway bicycle stand bay opposite No. 7B Vicarage Gate.

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. The proposed cycle stand would provide space for two bicycles and would be available for anyone to use free of charge.

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 three metres (ten feet) of residents’ parking to a cycle hangar bay and two metres (seven feet) of residents’ parking to an on-carriageway bicycle stand bay opposite No. 7B Vicarage Gate. This area of five metres overall will accommodate a cycle hangar unit and cycle stand. Your comments will help us decide whether to proceed with the proposals as planned.

The residents’ bay had occupancy levels of 100 per cent during all times in the most recent survey in September 2018. Residents’ permit numbers have fallen by six percent since the survey was completed. The cycle hangar will use three metres of this single residents’ bay and the remaining two metres will be converted to an on-carriageway bicycle stand bay to provide further cycle parking facilities for two bicycles.
