Often retro fitting cycle parking leaves users unsatisfied or unfulfilled with facilities.

Access may not be up to the standards required to make it easy for cyclists to deposit or retrieve their cycles easily, so the area is underused.


The below image Figure 1 shows a pre application design of the type of development that requires cycle parking. However, there is no mention of it at all. This illustrates how cycle parking is often overlooked.

However, it is unclear how many cycles can be stored in this space and whether the access point is the grassed area or via the internal corridor.

Neither of which appear preferable.
