To ask the Minister for Regional Development how many cycle hoops have been installed in each council area in each of the last five years.

Over the last five years my Department has installed 156 cycle hoops in the following council areas:
Belfast – 97
Londonderry – 18
Down – 6
North Down – 6
Limavady – 5
Newry & Mourne – 4
Magherafelt – 6
Coleraine – 4
Moyle – 3
Dungannon – 2
Omagh – 2
Lisburn – 2
Castlereagh - 1
Cyclehoop is the trade name of a specific brand of cycle stand which attaches to existing street lighting columns or sign posts. Therefore, for the purposes of answering this question, the information above refers to cycle stands in general and not a specific brand or type.
Councils and, for example, the Department for Social Development as part of public realm works, may have also installed cycle stands and other cycling facilities, details of which are not maintained by my Department or included in the above figures.
