Over 500 of our award winning on street Bikehangars are now installed in over half of Central London’s Boroughs. This seminar is ideal if you are trialling Bikehangars already, are considering trialling them, or simply wish to learn more about them and their many benefits.

Come and listen to feedback from businesses which have had Parklets installed outside, and the positive impact they have had on their companies and the wider community.
We will have speakers from various Local London authorities who have experience of installing Bikehangars and Parklets on the streets. They will look at and discuss traffic management orders, planning regulations, resident consultations, issues raised, difficulties and how they overcame them.
