Temporary Residential Cycle Parking - Penn Street

As part of Hackney Council's promotion of cycling in the borough, a temporary cycle stand has been placed on Penn Street in De Beauvoir Ward.

This is a trial 'car bike port', which are used for a maximum of eight weeks and monitored regularly to assess the level of local cycle parking demand. If there proves to be demand for regular cycle parking the council will consider installing permanent facilities

If it is appropriate a further consultation with residents will be undertaken at the conclusion of the trial.

The temporary stand is placed in front of numbers 23 to 28 Penn Street taking up a 5.5m section of the residential parking bay. Following the eight-week trial the parking bay will be reinstated for local residents.

Any questions on this trial or for more information call Hackney Service Centre on 020 8356 2897 or email

Below is an example of the type of 'car bike port' stand being used in the trial.
