We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to expand Santander Cycles Hire to near Elgin Avenue in Maida Vale by funding a docking station as part of the Council's Dolphin Living Lanark Road development. More details
Santander Cycles Hire is a convenient way to travel for work or leisure. I live at Dibdin House on Maida Vale and I use the scheme to hire an extra bike for a family day out, or to cycle between business meetings. But it's frustrating that Maida Vale residents can't ride a 'Boris bike' home because Santander Cycles only extends as far north as Warwick Avenue. It's crazy that the scheme extends from Putney to Stratford, yet doesn't cover the north of Westminster.
As part of the planning consent for the Council's proposed Dolphin Living Lanark Road residential development Councillor Jan Prendergast has committed to reviewing its landscaping to provide greater benefits to the community. Relative to existing Santander Cycles Hire docking stations, the development's location is well placed to form an organic expansion of the scheme. Please sign this petition if you want the development to fund a Santander Cycles Hire docking station for the people of Maida Vale.
