New cycle lockers installed at a Nottingham park

Gedling Borough Council have installed seven new high security, steel bike lockers at the council office in Arnot Hill Park with funding from the Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner.

 

Located outside the entrance to the civic centre, the lockers are free to use and aim to promote cycling for people visiting the civic centre or the park. By offering a safe place to store bikes, it will help reduce the number of people travelling to the park by car.

 

These secure bicycle lockers also contribute to the Council’s ongoing efforts to provide eco-friendly alternatives to residents who would usually travel by car and encourage them to reduce their carbon footprint. Each of the lockers can store up to two bikes.

The new lockers are operated using a key which can be obtained from the reception desk or bike owners can use their padlocks. The lockers are funded as part of Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner’s Safer Streets Funding.

Councillor Viv McCrossen, Portfolio Holder for Climate Change and Natural Habitat said: “We are thrilled to introduce these high-security bike lockers at Arnot Hill Park. By providing a safe and convenient option for cyclists, we hope to encourage more residents to choose biking over driving, contributing to a healthier environment and a more active lifestyle”.
