The results of the consultation were published in June 2016. Out of 19 sites, 14 were approved and 21 bikehangars will be installed altogether. These are in Belsize Avenue, College Place (their third!), Estelle Road, Glenbrook Road, Goldhurst Terrace, Montpelier Grove, Ospringe Road, Plender Street, Rochester Road, Ryland Road, St. Augustine’s Road, South Hill Park, Sumatra Road, Westbere Road. They should be installed in October 2016.
In five locations – Hastings Street, Lissenden Gardens, Millman Street, Mornington Street, and Primrose Gardens – objections outweighed the supporters and these sites have not been approved.
It is clear from the results published by Camden that in many cases getting the support of ward councillors was helpful. Being able to organise cyclists and others to support the proposals is also vital. We have learned a lot from this process and will continue to press for more bikehangars throughout Camden.
Once these installations is under way, Camden will begin to consider further sites where they are needed. If you want one on your street, let us know and also inform Richard Riddle) at Camden, giving your full address.
