My estate is waiting for lockers to be installed. We haven't had to get funding from cleaner greener, but what is taking time is planning permission, believe it or not you have to get planning permission to have them installed!! Five months on and we are still waiting.
OMG It took my estate a good couple of years. First we had to wait until the landscape was re-done as part of a section 106 agreement. Then the planning application process was the biggest faff on planet earth ever and done I think by Southwark Council
people! I mean for a few bike lockers they have to provide access statements and all sundry. It's ridiculous actually. I'm just glad that after all those years I managed to get a bike locker and have no longer to drag my bike into the lift and through the flat onto the balcony.
