The consultation is running until 5th November - click below to find out more and respond! We stopped them before, with your help we can stop them again -

Nearly three years after they were first proposed Camden has just put out a new consultation on motorcycle parking charges.
We know this is disappointing news but remember this is the fourth time Camden have tried to bring in charges, and every time riders have stopped them.
They’ve provided very little information, and what they have provided is not clear - we have asked for urgent clarification and will update you as soon as we have it. What we know so far about the proposals is

Camden Council has just put out a new consultation on motorcycle parking charges -

🚨 parking permits for residents', businesses' and doctors' motorcycles to cost the same price as cars
🚨 solo motorcycle bays charged at £2.60/day (£2 for electric) costing £600/year for a commuter
🚨 riders living in 'car-free developments' face charges up to £950/year - more than any car
🚨 residents permits to nearly double from £75 to £146/year (£139 for electric)
🚨 introducing motorcycle business permits at £419/year and doctors permits at £326

It appears Camden no longer plan to ban commuting with £6/hour and maximum stay limits in solo motorcycle bays, which is a positive sign that they are listening. But the charges are still absolutely outrageous so we need your help to fight the plans! And whats worse, Camden dont seem know ther backside from their elbow when it comes to thier own policy. Visitors on motorcycles are charged more than commuters & residents....

Camden tried to do this in 2020 and riders managed to stop them - we must act together to stop them again - please share this post and spread the word to all bikers.

For anyone who hasent signed yet, there is less than two weeks till the end of the Camden consultation. If everyone could share again on forums etc that would be really helpful.
