Representation 14361 on Issues and Options Report by Mr Richard Taylor

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Issues and Options Report - Question 12.16
Representation: Requirements for planning permission to install secure cycle parking in-front of houses, in a manner much less intrusive than a parked vehicle, are I think a problem. The city's planning policy ought be supportive of those wishing to install secure cycle parking facilities at their homes.

Cycle parking provision is insufficient in many places in the city, as evidenced by the numbers of fly-parked, insecurely parked bikes on many of the city's streets. Cyclists like to park very close to their destinations, and parking provision should reflect this.
