Bayford Road Proposed Bike Hangar

Closes 2 Jul 2021

Opened 10 Jun 2021

Overview

Brent Council aims to improve facilities for cyclists in the borough and promote active and sustainable travel.

In line with the vision set out in our Cycle Strategy 2016-2021, the Council is encouraging more residents to take up cycling, to enjoy the health benefits that this brings and to help reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality in the borough.

The Council has received requests from residents in the Kensal Green area to provide secure cycle parking in streets where they do not have access to private outdoor space. Bikes can block hallways and staircases in some properties, and those left on street can be a target for cycle theft.

Through its cycle parking programme, the Council propose to install bike hangers in areas where there is a high demand from local residents for this facility.

Why we are consulting

We are proposing to introduce a Bike Hangar on Bayford Road. The proposed Bike Hangar would be located near the junction of Rainham Road where there is currently a residential parking bay. The Bike Hanger will take 3m in space, which is equivalent to half a vehicle parking space. 

The hangar, which has the capacity to store six bicycles, will be rented to users for an annual fee.
