Cycle hangars — for residential use
To encourage more people to use cycling as a mode of transport, we've been helping residents who don’t have anywhere to store their bikes by installing our specially designed secure Lambeth Bikehangar for them to rent.
The Lambeth Bikehangar installs into a standard two metre parking bay by bolting onto the curb. It securely holds six bikes and takes up the space of half a car.
We've installed over 200 hangars in Lambeth, providing 1,200 cycle parking spaces for residents, and we're committed to installing more.
Each hangar space costs £42 to rent per year - £3.50 a month. This rental service is managed by Cycle Hoop.
The demand for space in an existing hangar, or for new cycle hangars to be installed, is extremely high. So far, this demand is outstripping how fast we can supply them.
We collate information from applications and use this to assess whether there is enough demand for proposed locations. Each new location needs to be visited by one of our in-house engineers, after which it is put out for consultation so that residents have an opportunity to give their input.
If the road lies within a Controlled Parking Zone, a further consultation will be needed so that we can apply for a Traffic Order. This allows us to install the cycle hangar in a parking bay or on yellow lines. The design process and resident consultations take a considerable amount of time. Once a hangar has been installed, we use information from applications and waiting lists to offer spaces to residents.
If you’re interested in a space in an existing cycle hangar, please go to the Cyclehoop website.
