Residential cycle parking
For many residents, the lack of secure and easily accessible bike storage can be a barrier towards using their bike on a regular basis. Hounslow Council has therefore set up a scheme to offer residents of the borough an option to have a bikehangar installed.
Designed and manufactured by Cyclehoop, the bikehangar offers a secure solution to long-term cycle parking and an effective way to protect bikes from adverse weather conditions and vandalism. This product stores six bikes within half the space of a car parking bay, making it ideal for areas where outdoor cycle storage space is necessary. For example in areas with a high density of flats or terraced houses.
Hounslow Council finances the cost of installation through its annual funding allocated to cycle parking from Transport for London. The allocation and management of spaces within the bikehangar is managed by our contractor, Cyclehoop. There are six spaces per hanger, and the council has recently agreed to subsidise new hanger spaces to a reduced cost of £36 per year to rent, plus a refundable deposit for a key, payable to Cyclehoop.
How to apply for residential cycle parking
To apply for a new bikehangar location, we ask residents to complete a short eform. Please click HERE to access. We request that residents demonstrate support for the hangar on their street amongst residents. We’ll then assess the best location for the hangar, draw up a plan and consult locally to gauge feedback. Due to the budget available, new hangar locations will be prioritised based on demand and local access to existing bike storage space.
