London Assembly member for Enfield and Haringey, Joanne McCartney, was today officially appointed by the GLA to undertake an investigation into cycle parking in London with the aim of bringing about more cycling parking in better locations for an ever-increasing number of cyclists.

A statement issued on her behalf said: 'It has become clear in recent months that the increase in the number of parking spaces since 2000 has not kept up with the number of cycle trips. At the same time, TfL research has found that the availability of cycle parking and the security of parked bikes remain the two biggest cycling-related concerns for potential, new and experienced cyclists. The GLA therefore thinks it important to look at how best to supply further good quality cycle parking spaces in London as well as to more closely examine the potential roles played by the Mayor, Transport for London and London boroughs in this process,'

As part of the investigation, Ms McCartney will talk to key stakeholders like the Mayor's Office, TfL and the London boroughs to analyse the effectiveness of current measures for cycle parking provision.

''The view of users and potential users of cycle parking is, of course, just as important,'' said the statement.

If you would like to be kept informed about the forthcoming consultation please email Joanne McCartney on joanne.mccartney@london.gov.uk and further details will be forwarded when available.
