We are running a six month pilot scheme of secure cycle storage in eight roads in the city between March and September 2021.
Bike hangars are on-street, secure, lockable, covered pods which can accommodate between four and six cycles. They offer a practical solution for people who are keen to cycle but are limited by a lack of outside secure cycle storage. They are ideal if you would like to cycle for exercise, education or commuting but do not have the space to store a bicycle securely. If storage has stopped you from owning a bike, renting a space in a hangar could be a great opportunity for you to get one.
We have introduced the pilot following resident requests for more cycle storage and to make cycling more accessible to everyone, as part of a wider approach to supporting active travel and creating a greener, cleaner city.
Residents who live near a hangar can sign up for free for the first six months between March and September 2021. Once the initial six month trial period has finished the hangar provider will charge £30 rental per year. Spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
To sign up for a space in a bike hangar, simply click on the road link below to select your nearest one. This will take you through to the supplier’s website to complete your registration. Where hangars are oversubscribed, spaces will be limited to two per household.
Residents living in and around the roads where hangars have been installed can give their views once their local hangar is in place. Email BikeHangarRequest@portsmouthcc.gov.uk to have your say.
Recommend your road for a hangar
If the pilot scheme proves popular the council will seek further funding to expand bike hangars to other roads throughout the city. If you would like to rent a space in a bike hangar but don’t live near the roads selected for the pilot you can nominate your road for a hangar in the future.
