Please provide lockers at HDB carparks for motorcyclists to use

I would like to petition the HDB Parking administration to consider providing some simple lockers at the carparks (or in nearby void decks) for use by residents who have a motorcycle parking subscription in those carparks, for storage of items such as helmets, simple tools and cleaning equipment etc.
Motorists with cars have trunks (boots) to store items in which they do or do not always need when driving. For motorcyclists this is different. Sometimes one needs a second helmet, and or additional bags etc that can only be safely stored in one's flat, which may be several minutes (and lift rides/stair climbs) away, making fetching or dropping these off when the need arises very inconvenient (esp.. if other items need to also be carried)
It would be a great help if motorcyclists had simple lockers available near their parking locations in which they could keep these items when not in use. I envision that these would be made available for a reasonable monthly rent (S$5-S$10/month) which would be optionally available to those who have a subscription for motorbike parking in the same carpark. Many carparks have 'dead' /unused space which can be used for these, or in places with surface carparks these could possibly be installed in the void decks of nearby blocks or such. Each locker should provide sufficient space for 2 helmets and/or items like a pail, some cleaning equipment and simple tools. The lockers should allow for use of one's own padlock and have some form of rain protection.
Additionally some 'common' storage space (e.g. for storage of items like pails, hoses for washing bikes) may also be useful to encourage of sharing of the same.
