Richmond Bikehangars Consultation 2021 (Phase 2)

Closes 30 Apr 2021

Opened 25 Mar 2021

Overview

Cycling is a sustainable, healthy and affordable means of travel. An increase in cycling will help us to reduce greenhouse gases and pollutants that cause poor air quality and are bad for our health and the environment. 

Many residents, particularly those who live in terraced streets and flats, find it difficult to keep bicycles at home due to lack of storage space.  The Council has received over 440 requests for bikehangars from residents. Having analysed these requests and evaluated suitable locations, the Council is proposing to install 14-20 bikehangars across the borough depending on the outcomes of this consultation. Residents should be aware of the fact that not all of the sites listed below will be progressed. 

A single bikehangar houses six bicycles and takes up the space of about half the space of a car parking bay. Please note each bikehangar user is required to pay a refundable deposit and an annual subscription to the supplier (currently £72), which covers administration and maintenance.  

The intention is for the bikehangars to be installed on an experimental basis.  This will allow us to monitor their use and consider any concerns or issues, before deciding whether or not to retain them permanently in each location.
