We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to Install more bike racks in Heddon St. More details

Petition update from the council, 15 September 2016

Dear Mr. Craig Morris,

I acknowledge the petition asking for more cycle stands in Heddon Street: We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to Install more bike racks in Heddon St. The bike racks are already full by 8:30 and the nearest bike rack is across on the other side of regent street which makes it very inconvenient. Riders are resorting to locking their bike on nearby lamp posts and even leaving them in fire escape hallways of our building.

It was investigated to increase the capacity for cycle parking in Heddon Street, but it is not possible to increase the provisions for cycle parking at this particular location at this time. A review of the existing cycle parking in Westminster is currently being undertaken and there is the desire to increase the capacity for secure cycle parking across Westminster and discussions are ongoing between Westminster City Council and The Crown Estate to provide increased cycle parking provisions within their estate.

I apologise that your request could not be accommodated, but I hope to provide you with more positive feedback regarding the introduction of increased cycle parking places in the very near future.

Kind Regards,


Anthony Sabato
Project Support Officer
City Management and Communities
