Cycle parking

We successfully bid for funding from Transport for London to provide more cycle parking this year. The funding will be spent on installing more cycle racks in town centres and at other locations where they’re needed, as well as secure cycle hangars for residents on streets and housing estates. 

Access to cycle parking has been identified as one of the main barriers to getting more people cycling regularly. Increasing cycle parking is supported by our Cycling and Greener Greenwich Strategies, and is just one of the things we are doing in response to the climate emergency.

Consultation 

Earlier this year we consulted residents on our cycle parking proposals. Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment, your views are really important to us. Read our responses to the comments we received. 

For sites where there are parking controls, we have now brought into effect new Traffic Management Orders (TMOs). This dictates where the cycle hangars and on-street public racks are legally accommodated on borough controlled roads. A formal decision was taken to make these Orders, and you can read the decision report on the Committee section of our website. 

For sites with no parking controls, we’ll be putting notices up on your streets shortly. 

Request cycle parking

Anyone who lives, works or studies in the borough can request publicly available cycle parking. 

If you live in the borough you can also request secure on-street cycle parking.

Public cycle racks

Cycle rack

There are hundreds of public cycle racks on streets across the borough.

Secure cycle parking

Bike hangar

We install cycle hangars on streets and housing estates for secure cycle parking. They are half the length of a parking bay and can store up to six bicycles.

Cycle hangars on housing estates

If you are a council tenant or leaseholder find out about bike storage on council estates.

Cycle hangars on streets

Cycle hangars can be rented for a small annual fee, which is subsidised for residents by the Council.

Request to use a hangar

We accept requests for new hangars and registrations for existing units. Demand is very high, so registering your interest does not guarantee that you will eventually be allocated a place.

We select installation sites depending upon:

  • demand from local residents
  • community support from local residents
  • distribution of existing hangars across the borough
  • locations with no access to gardens or barriers to storage such as stairs
  • availability of funding.
