Resident cycle parking (bikehangar)
Bike storage particularly in smaller properties can be a challenge and limit the number of people who have access to a bike.
The Enjoy Waltham Forest programme has delivered 350 Bikehangars, offering 1,500 spaces to residents. This safe, secure and convenient cycle storage on residential streets takes up just half a car parking space and enables people to cycle more frequently.
From 1 April 2019 the cost of renting a space in a bikehangar is £25 a year, or £2.08 a month.
In response to demand in 2017, the council accelerated bike hangar delivery installing 135 units from September 2017 to July 2018. Currently the council has over 3,000 outstanding requests for Bikehangar spaces and receives on average 250 new requests a month.
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate all of the residents' requests we receive, however we are working hard to prioritise areas of high demand. Spaces in a Bikehangar are allocated based on access to storage space and potential to cycle more. When we install Bikehangars they are often full upon installation, this is because they are installed in response to residents’ requests.
Not every request will result in a space in a Bikehangar, but we keep residents' details on file for two years to guide our future delivery plans.
