Hi there,

As part of the Mini Holland programme, we are bidding to design and build 8 cycle parking facilities or ‘bike sheds’ in the following locations:

·         Leyton Station (larger super shed facility)
·         Walthamstow Station - Town Square Gardens (larger super shed facility)
·         Blackhorse Road Station
·         Chingford Station
·         Highams Park Station
·         Leytonstone Station
·         St James Street Station
·         Wood Street Station

In order to provide the best solution for the community, we are looking to get feedback from as many people (and groups of people) as possible, telling us what you would like from these community facilities. So please fill in the questionnaire below and encourage your fellow residents to do the same to help us shape the design of the facilities.

Would it be possible for you to promote our questionnaire via your blog to give everyone the best opportunity of having a say?


Or alternatively I have attached a Word Document.

We will be attending the Ward meeting on Thursday evening as well so it would be good to meet up of possible?

Please note: this process will run until 17th December, your information will be used solely for the purposes of this Cycle Parking project. If you would like to discuss this questionnaire or any part of the project further then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with jeremy.green@falco.co.uk.

Many thanks

Jeremy

Waltham Forest Borough Council, Mini Holland Cycle Sheds, Stakeholder Engagement Questionnaire

Waltham Forest is currently undergoing rapid regeneration with approximately £270m being invested in major residential, retail and commercial development. A recent success includes winning a £27million bid for our mini-Holland project to radically change neighbourhoods by placing cycling at the heart of its schemes - this cycling transformation helps to provides a huge catalyst for long-term growth in the borough - you can view the bid document here (http://www.walthamforest.gov.uk/miniholland).

As part of the Borough Mini Holland cycling programme, we are looking to design and build 8 cycle parking facilities or ‘bike sheds’ in the following places:

·       Leyton Station (larger super shed facility)
·       Walthamstow Station - Town Square Gardens (larger super shed facility)
·       Blackhorse Road Station
·       Chingford Station
·       Highams Park Station
·       Leytonstone Station
·       St James Street Station
·       Wood Street Station

In order to provide the best solution for the community, we are looking to get feedback from as many people and groups of people as possible, as to what you would like from these community facilities. So please fill in the questionnaire below and encourage your fellow residents to do the same to help us shape the design of the facilities! Note: this process will run until 17th December.

1. Your Name/Contact Details (if you are happy for us to get back in touch?):

2. Position in Community e.g. resident, teacher, voluntary worker etc., or perhaps you are part of a community group:

3. Cycle Shed Build Features – what features would you like in your local bike shed to be made of? (e.g. clear walls for security, green roof, robust materials etc.):

4. Facilities - the structures are primarily for secure cycle parking, but what other facilities would you like to see in your cycle sheds? (e.g. seating, cycle repair stand, information points, pump, electric bike charging etc.):

5. Entry and Security – a key component of the design is security for users and cycles, what kind of security systems would you suggest (e.g. CCTV, smart card access , access times etc.):

6. Aesthetics and Branding – we would like to give the network of cycling facilities across the Borough a cohesive feel, via a name or brand, so they are recognised by everyone in the Borough. Do you have an idea for the name of the cycle sheds network? (PS we cannot used the word ‘hub’!) Note you could have a different name for the different shelters?:

7. Cost – would it be fair to charge to park a bike in a high quality secure facility? If yes how much and how would you pay?
8. Comments - any other comments you would like to add, to help us design the best facilities for the borough?

Please note: your information will be used solely for the purposes of this Cycle Parking project. If you would like to discuss this questionnaire or any part of the project further then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with jeremy.green@falco.co.uk. Please leave a number if you want him to call you back.

Thank you for your input!
