Secure cycle parking hubs for flats / high density areas
Many flats / high density accommodation were built before the planning requirement to provide cycle parking facilities. A lot of this accommodation is too cramped for a bike to be stored in the flat and there are health & safety problems on the stairs. This prevents people from cycling to work and for leisure.
Establish some secure cycling parking hubs which people could subscribe to and park their bikes. A small monthly charge could be made to become a member of the scheme.
Why the contribution is important
This would remove a big block affecting thousands of people which prevents them from owning and using a bike.
More people would cycle to work and use their bikes for leisure which would have positive health benefits, lowering stress and reducing obesity
It would solve the battle between landlords and tenants about bikes on stair wells. It would lower theft as many bikes are locked outside people's flats as they don't have storage for them - the bikes deteriorate as they are exposed to the elements.
