Application Reference HGY/2017/3207
Address: Unit 1, Cranford Way, N8 9DG (off Tottenham Lane)
Extracts from 'Planning, Design & Access' document:
"Installation of 10no. commercial kitchen units and 3no. ancillary units to form a commercial kitchen facility (use class B1c) for a temporary period of five years."
"Deliveroo intend to use the site to accommodate ten mobile kitchen units which would operate as commercial kitchens used by restaurant operators. Three further units will be utilised for W/C, General Walfare and Dispatch facilities. The proposed units will provide a total floor area of 331 sqm."
"In terms of operation, food would be cooked within the kitchen units to order and Deliveroo riders would collect the items to deliver to the customer."
"Deliveroo will operate the kitchens between 17:30 to 23:00 (Monday to Thursday) and 12.00 to 23.00 (Friday to Sunday)."
"Deliveroo riders principally use a mix of pedal cycles and motorised scooters. The catchment area for deliveries from the application site is typically 2.5km, and the maximum riding time for the delivery riders to take the food order from the site to the customer is 15 minutes. When not in use during operational hours, bikes scooters will be taken away from the unit by the riders. There will be no storage of bikes overnight."
"In terms of movements, the application site will require regular access by Deliveroo riders on bikes and scooters in addition to service vehicles during the operational hours of 17.30pm and 23.00pm (Monday to Thursday) and 12.00am to 23.00pm (Friday to Sunday)."
Even a normal bike gets you up Muswell Hill (I know from experience). I think you're asking if you could do it without pedalling. The answer is yes, a friend in Stockholm does 50 mph on his as it's been "chipped". The speed limit for an electric bicycle is the same as for a moped though and 20 mph is VERY achievable, even 30. Read the review of this one.
Better bring in mandatory training and licensing for them.
The pillion passenger is the main problem as it is a source of crime. Nobody who currently commutes on a moped in London would be inconvenienced by using an electric bicycle.
You can also use the electric bicycle to just "assist" your own cycling. It would also charge your battery (a modest amount) when you go down hill.
Michael, I saw this and thought of you. ;)
Wasn't there a plan to pilot the use of electric KenBikes (as they should be called) in the west of Haringey as it was felt the hills would put people off using leg-powered borrow-bikes? Did it ever happen?
No sign so far, and (my opinion) it was always a stretch option given how much more expensive electric bikes are compared to push-bikes. And who would charge them overnight...
Erm, 'too posh to push' comes to mind, out of context.
Yes I live east of the railway. And I cycle.
This is absolutely fantastic news if you ask me. We noticed a few new things had popped up on Deliveroo and got a bit excited. There is very slim chance that anything like Meatliquor/Mother Clucker/Busaba etc would ever open on Kebab Lanes, so being able to order from them is a great thing in my opinion.
