Richmond Bikehangars Consultation 2020

Closed 22 Apr 2020

Opened 11 Mar 2020

Overview

UPDATE: THE CLOSING DATE OF THIS  CONSULTATION HAS BEEN EXTENDED.

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 250 requests for bikehangars from residents. Having analysed these requests and evaluated suitable locations, the Council is proposing to install 20 bikehangars across the borough, following a successful funding application to Transport for London in phase 1, with a further 20 to be consulted on later in the year.

 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 of £72 to the supplier, 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.

What happens next

All feedback will be carefully considered before any decisions are made about the proposed sites. Where a location is selected, a bikehangar will be installed and its use monitored before a final decision is made about whether the bikehangar will remain on a permanent basis. The Council aims to install the bikehangars in early summer 2020.
