Nottingham City Council has several secure Nottingham Cycle Parks for people to park their bikes across the city. They act as a convenient place for cyclists to keep their bikes safe and are all well-lit, covered, monitored by CCTV and have key card access.
The annual charges for Nottingham Cycle Parks have not changed since they were introduced and are considerably lower than secure cycle parking facilities in other parts of the UK, such as those in Leeds and Manchester. The scheme is currently subsidised but there is a need to reduce the level of subsidy given to users of the scheme.
From Saturday 1 April 2023, annual charges for Nottingham Cycle Parks will be:
- Direct Debit customers: £9.75
- Replacement cards: £10.50
- One-time-only payment customers: £12.00
This annual charge contributes towards maintenance and CCTV at the facilities. The new prices will come into effect once any current Cycle Park cards expire. Users paying by annual direct debit will be contacted before their next payment.
One Nottingham Cycle Park will close at midnight on Friday 31 March 2023:
- Colwick Park and Ride
The facility at Colwick Park and Ride is closing because of very low levels of use over several years, which means the cost of operating and maintaining the hub outweighs the benefits it offers its users.
The Cycle Parks in Arnold, Beeston and West Bridgford were also scheduled to close, but Gedling Borough Council, Broxtowe Borough Council and Rushcliffe Borough Council have agreed to cover the ongoing costs for 2023/24 so they can remain open.
There are 20 Cycle Parks available to use across the city. You can visit this page to find out more information about Nottingham Cycle Parks
