Cycle Hangars - Local Consultation

Closed 2 Jul 2017

Opened 2 Jun 2017

Overview

The council wants to significantly increase the number of residents using a bicycle as their preferred way of getting around, particularly for local journeys. Installing cycle hangars is one of the ways we can support this. 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.

Why We Are Consulting

It is important for all consultees to respond to the consultation as your views help us to understand local requirements, whether you cycle, use public transport, walk or drive a private vehicle. We would be grateful if you could take the time to review the proposals outlined in this document and provide a response using the pre-paid envelope and questionnaire provided and respond by Sunday 25th June 2017.

What are the proposed changes?

  • Install a cycle hangar in the place shown on the map 
  • The hangar would be located on the road, have two feet on the kerb and would open onto the pavement for access to the cycle stands inside

Location plans are provided below.

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 presented at a local community council meeting in May 2017.

Should you require any further information regarding the proposed scheme please contact Matthew Donaldson at Matthew.Donaldson@southwark.gov.uk

Further information on other schemes along the route in Southwark can also be found here.

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.
