Cycle storage space
Cycle storage enables more cycling by providing a solution to those who would otherwise be unable to securely store a bicycle.
Installing cycle storage on private property
We support residents wishing to install cycle storage in front and back gardens, but consideration is needed on whether the design and position of the cycle storage complies with the our planning policies. Residents are recommended to request pre-application advice before purchasing and installing any storage units.
As a minimum, you will need to have to hand the dimensions and material of the proposed cycle storage unit and the dimensions of your front or back garden where it is planned to be installed. In more sensitive locations like conservation areas and listed buildings, further information may be required.
What are bikehangars?
Bikehangars are designed to provide a secure on-street cycle parking solution and can only be accessed by a member using a key. They enable more cycling by providing a solution to those who would otherwise be unable to securely store a bicycle.
A Bikehangar securely holds six cycles and fits within a standard two metre parking bay by bolting onto the curb taking up the space of half a car.
Bikehangars are not suitable for large, non-standard cycles such as cargo bikes. Read our guidance for on-street parking of non-standard cycles.
Availability and cost of bikehangers
Bikehangars are priced at £72 per year and managed by CycleHoop. Bikehangars will be prioritised to residents who:
- Live on the street (or adjacent one) where the Bikehangar is provided
- Do not have a garage or suitable outside space to store a bike
- Demonstrate high levels of local support
Wandsworth's Bikehangar network
21 Bikehangars were installed in 2020 following public consultation between 3 March 2020 and 31 March 2020. View their locations. Sites were selected based on locations deemed suitable and the number of resident requests received.
To apply for a space in one of the borough’s Bikehangars, visit Cyclehoop.
Next phase of Bikehangar installations
We are now consulting the public on a further phase of Bikehangar installations. The consultation started on 17 September 2021 and will remain open until 15 October 2021.
Visit the consultation page to make comments and to view the full list of proposed locations.
Sites have been selected based on locations deemed suitable and the number of resident requests received.
Request a Bikehangar on your street
We welcome further requests from residents to help plan future installations. We are currently seeking further funding for more Bikehangars due to the level of demand. Let us know if you would like a Bikehangar installed on your street via the link below.
Registering your interest for a Bikehangar on your street does not count as an application for a space in that Bikehangar. The application process will go live to residents once locations have been installed. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
Locations must be on Wandsworth highways only. For installation enquiries on housing estates or residential blocks please contact your landlord.
Demonstrate support for a Bikehangar and ask your neighbours to submit their interest too.
