Apologies to Cardigan Street cyclists…

The list of new cycle hangars for the ward includes Brook Drive and Chester way later this year but we had hoped to have some in Cardigan Street.  We decided against as some residents felt that these cycle hangars are at odds with a conservation area. Others worried that they could block ambulances and daylight to their home. I attach some photos which try and show that a. they are no taller than many cars, b. they are no longer than many cars and c. provide six parking spaces instead of one.

As to how a discreet green box is any less ‘conservation area’ than a car I can’t understand. Post-covid with a desire for cleaner air and a safer, quieter city these are discussions we will be having more frequently. Worth saying that two local resident’s associations are looking for more cycle parking.
