Wandsworth Bike Project

Cycle crime victims can apply for a new bike from the Wandsworth Bike Project. Young people are taught bicycle repair and maintenance skills as part of a community sentence, and then fix up bikes which are given to victims of bike crime.

The council’s Youth Offending Team runs the Wandsworth Bike Project from the Training and Resource Centre in Alma Road.

As part of a community sentence, young people are taught bicycle repair and maintenance skills and fix up bikes which are then given to  victims of bike crime.   The bikes are donated by the public and by the police.

The scheme cannot guarantee you will be provided with a suitable bike straight away, but it does try to match people to bikes as soon as possible.

If you have been the victim of bike crime and would like to apply for a new bike email Rebecca Lynn at rlynn@wandsworth.gov.uk or call her on 020 8871 5571.

How to Avoid a Parking Ticket this Bank Holiday

Find out where you can park your car this bank holiday. Parking bays are free but yellow lines will be enforced.

Drivers can park for free for as long as they like in marked out parking bays on Monday. They will not need to purchase a pay and display ticket, nor pay-by-phone nor display a parking permit. 

But they must avoid parking on a yellow line. These restrictions still apply on bank holidays – because they cover locations where parked vehicles could be a hazard or cause an obstruction.

Drivers who leave their cars in parking bays that are only partially available throughout the day should check the signs carefully to avoid staying there when the yellow line restrictions do come into force. These bays are mainly found in bus lanes.

Vehicles that obstruct driveways, are parked unlawfully in doctors’ bays, mandatory disabled bays or that block dropped kerbways, which permit disabled people and parents with pushchairs to safely cross the road, are likely to receive a ticket and could even be towed away.

The council’s environment and community services director Tony McDonald said: “All yellow line restrictions remain in force on bank holidays if the rules would normally apply on that day of the week.

“Drivers can check the days and times these restrictions are in force by looking at the large signs that mark the entrance to all controlled parking zones or the small yellow signs attached to adjacent lampposts. These will tell you the days of the week and the hours of the day when the yellow line rules will be enforced.

“If the sign says that parking is restricted Monday to Friday then that will include all bank holidays that fall on those days.”

Motorists using the car parks in Battersea Park will still need to buy a pay and display ticket or pay-by-phone on the bank holiday. There is no free parking in the park at any time.
