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 Healthy Streets 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. Please use the "Apply for a space in a bike hangar" form below to express your interest in a secure cycle parking space within an existing bike hangar unit. If there is space available within your preferred unit you will be allocated a space and required to pay the 12-month fee of £12 plus a £25 key deposit. If there are no spaces available you will be added to the waiting list for that unit.

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.
