Cycle Shelters

Cycle Shelters

Cycle shelters are a fantastic addition to any public space. They help to keep bikes safe, secure and protected from the weather whilst also encouraging staff, pupils and visitors to take to their bikes for healthier lifestyles, reduced congestion and lower emissions.

Cycle Shelters and Cycle Storage Solutions

A cycle shelter is a welcome addition to any school, park, recreation ground or commercial premises.

It provides cyclists with somewhere safe and secure to leave their bikes and encourages them to cycle more, therefore reducing traffic and pollution and promoting the health benefits of exercise.

Our bike shelters are available in a variety of colours and finishes and are made from a range of materials that offer all weather protection. We offer galvanised finishes or zinc primer undercoats as well as wire mesh, Perspex or polycarbonate panels and even have the option of a wooden shelter.

Our cycle storage can include built-in racks suitable for adult or junior bikes as well as scooter storage. Some designs include sliding or hinged doors and can be combined with buggy storage, whilst we also offer mini cycle storage for those who have limited space. With lean-to, wall-mounted, cantilever or free standing options available, we offer durable cycle shelters that are suitable for any space or environment.

Why Install Cycle Shelters In Schools?

Why Install Cycle Shelters In Schools?

Cycle shelters are a fantastic investment for any school as they are of benefit to both staff and pupils.

The school run makes up a large amount of rush hour traffic which can be greatly reduced by encouraging more pupils to cycle to school. Less cars coming to school also means less pressure on limited parking spaces in and around the school.

By promoting active travel, schools can also encourage exercise and a healthier lifestyle for all.

The inclusion of bike shelters in schools helps to publicise cycling and makes cyclists themselves feel valued by giving them their own facilities.

The installation of cycle storage may not be as costly as you think, with funding available from the Lottery, Extended Schools budgets, local authorities and business sponsors.

Do I Need Planning Permission?

Do I Need Planning Permission?

When looking at installing a cycle shelter on your premises, you need to consider whether planning permission will be needed.

In some cases planning permission is not necessary as it is only required if your covered storage is within 20 metres of the school boundary, if it is visible from the public highway or if it causes the school to exceed its permissible development limits.

This means that installing a bike shelter can be a simple and uncomplicated process.

Your local authority will advise you on whether permission for covered or uncovered storage is required. They can also help you to understand what type of application you will need to make.

Some local authorities may charge a small fee for any pre-applications.
