There’s hardly a destination where cycle parking isn’t necessary – train stations, schools, surgeries, garden centres, shopping streets, to name but a few. See our guide to cycle parking for more on best practice.

CTC View (formal statement of CTC's policy): 
  • Short stay cycle parking should be based on the Sheffield stand design. Cycle lockers and more complex systems should be available at destinations where long stay parking is required.
  • Cycle parking should be located close to any entrance to required facilities. Where parking in public places is provided, such as in shopping centres and public transport interchanges it is preferable to maximise visibility to passers-by and CCTV.
  • All cycle parking facilities should have adequate lighting and if long-stay, protection from the weather.
  • The amount of good quality cycle parking in developments should be increased and cycle parking should be included in all new developments.
