Installation of new cycle hoops for safer bicycle storage

You said:

We need a safe and secure place to store our bicycles when not in use.

We have:

Worked with Borough Councils and the Greater London Authority, to secure funding that allowed us to install cycle hoops throughout the area.

Following the Grenfell Tower tragedy, the Fire Safety Act was introduced across Housing Associations. The Fire Safety Act sets out new, strict regulations which prevent storing any items in communal areas. This means safety exits are always kept clear in case there is an emergency.

Within the local community, many residents had a history of keeping their bicycles on their landings for security purposes. Our new initiative now allows residents to securely store their bikes in lockable areas, outside of their residential blocks. It also keeps communal areas clear and safe in the event of a fire.
