We think any new building needs to have secure, sheltered cycle parking as standard. And providing parking for cycling should be a key element of sustainable design.
But sadly the new proposed ‘sustainable construction checklist‘ mentions cycling in only the vaguest terms.
We’ll be checking the proposed new ‘London Cycle Design Standards’ (see here and this pdf) and asking the council what they’re going to put in … The London Plan includes specific standards for cycle parking (see this article) and we’d like to see these included in our standards.
Please get in touch with us or your councillors if you want any new build in the borough to have proper parking!
