Cycle Parking

The population of Enfield is predicted to grow significantly in the coming years. Our road network is already suffering congestion and more car use will create further difficulties. The Council has declared a climate emergency with a task force established to help tackle the issues around climate change and the environment. There are also concerns over health in the community. Therefore, one of the key strands of the Health & Wellbeing strategy is to enable people to be more active.

For all these reasons, Enfield Council is committed to enabling higher levels of active travel (walking and cycling). Part of our Journeys and Places programme is creating safe cycle routes. However, this work needs to be complemented with other initiatives, such as providing secure cycle parking in residential areas, town centres, transport hubs and other key destinations.

A lack of appropriate cycle parking facilities is cited as a barrier to cycling and cycle ownership, and could be a constraint on the future growth of cycling. Much of the borough's housing stock does not provide enough space or access to a garden for people to store bikes, which prevents them from cycling.

Bike hangars are a secure and weatherproof on-street cycle parking solution that take up 2.5 metres on the carriageway. Bike hangars have 6 spaces which are rentable on a yearly basis. See here for information on how to apply.

We also welcome suggestions from residents for new cycle parking facilities including cycle stands, residential bike hangars and estate bike hangars. Submit your request via the Request New Cycle Parking form below.

The secure cycle parking programme is funded by Transport for London (TfL) to meet the objectives of the Mayor of London's Transport Strategy by increasing cycle parking provision across the Borough.

  • Enfield Council is committed to enabling more people to walk, wheel, cycle and travel by other forms of active travel. As part of our Journeys and Places programme we provide secure cycle parking in residential areas, town centres, transport hubs and other key destinations.

    We are proposing to install a bike hangar outside No. 16-18 Seaton Street N18 2JP, and are writing to you about the statutory consultation on the draft traffic order regarding this bike hangar. A bike hangar is an on-street cycle storage container that is accessible by key to those who have a membership to that hangar (membership costs £12 per year). A lack of space for storing a bike prevents some people from cycling. Bike hangars enable people who do not have much space in their homes to store their bikes securely near to their home. Bike hangars can fit up to six bikes and take up roughly the space on the carriageway needed to park a car.

    You can view the design here.

    We invite residents and anyone interested to provide an objection or representation to the draft traffic order through the statutory consultation. The statutory consultation is open until midnight on Sunday 17 December 2023. Any objection or representation must be made in writing, quoting the reference TG52/1548 and must state the grounds on which it is made. You can complete this survey to submit your objections or representations, or alternatively:

    Following the statutory consultation, a summary of the objections and representations will be produced. Enfield Council will provide a response and use the comments received to make a decision on whether or not to make the proposed changes.
