Cycle Hangars

Closed 5 Feb 2016

Opened 15 Jan 2016


Have your say

Southwark Council is consulting on the installation of a ‘Bicycle Hanger’ (bicycle parking unit) in your area. The unit, pictured below, provides secure undercover on-street parking for 6 bicycles, in about half the space a car would occupy.

Introducing cycle hangars forms part of the Council’s objective to significantly increase the number of residents using a bicycle as their preferred mode of transport, particularly for local journeys. This is supported by the Mayor for London’s Vision for Cycling.

Cycle hangars are designed to provide a secure on-street cycle parking solution and can only be accessed by a member using a key. They encourage cycling by providing a safe parking place to individuals who would otherwise be put off owning and using a bike in Southwark.

These hangars have been installed in other Boroughs across London as well as in Southwark and have proved to be popular with cyclists. The hangar has been requested by a local resident and each of the 6 available spaces would be available to rent for a small annual fee. The allocation of spaces would be on a first come first served basis.

Cycle hangars have been proposed at the following locations:

• Abbey Street

• Albrighton Road

• Astbury Road

• Austral Street

• Aylesbury Road

• Azenby Road

Interested in renting a space?

Should the cycle hangar consultation be successful then we will be looking for prospective cyclists to rent a space. Please go to the Cyclehoop website which contains detail regarding how to go about this process.

What happens next

The responses to the questionnaire will be analysed and taken into account in the final design of the proposed works. As you will appreciate Southwark Council receives many comments from consultations and therefore are unable to respond personally to specific issues raised. However all comments and suggestions will be taken into consideration before a decision is made. The consultation results and recommendations will be reported at the next local community council meeting in 2016.
