Bike Lockers

Do you or other family members ride a bike?

Want a practical and affordable solution to storing your cycling equipment?

The de Beauvoir Estate TRA are looking at ways to support cycling in our community because it’s good for your health, kinder to the environment and most of all a very convenient way to get about. The TRA are looking at various solutions for residents who want lockers for their bicycles. 1 of these include the ‘Bike Hangar’ (see below). It is currently unclear how many resident would like a solution like this so if you or a family member cycle or want to start cycling get in touch, tell us what you think. The more feedback we get the clearer we are on what people want and how to proceed.


In the meantime there are some bicycle storage facilities already available on the estate. These are single lockers managed by a company called Bikeaway. If you wish to apply for 1 of these you will need to contact them directly either through their website, phone or email:          01752 202116

Estate Allotments

Are you interested in an allotment?

Want to grow your own food?

The de Beauvoir Estate TRA has the opportunity to spend some of the EIB money on Allotments for our estate. 1 of the proposed plans is to place up to 6 of these raised allotments (see picture above) on the ‘podiums’ adjacent to Lancresse Court and Corbiere/Granville Courts. We (the TRA) would really like to hear from you if you are interested in gardening or growing your own food. We have a great chance to have some ‘Grass Roots’ activity on our estate and the TRA wants to support residents who get involved. Please contact Daniel, Secretary – De Beauvoir Estate TRA, if you want an allotment or have some suggestions and ideas about ways to improve the estate.

As a resident you are also welcome to attend our meetings and become part of the committee.
