  • Park Street car park to be demolished?

    Created by cobweb // 4 threads

    This is an idea, reported in the Cambridge News, to demolish the Park Street car park and rebuild it, so that the car parking is underground but leaving the cycle parking above ground. Flats would be built on top.

  • High st cycle access

    Created by Gerhard Weiss // 1 thread

    Walthamstow High Street has a busy market, which makes it near impossible to cycle. Outside market times it has 'no vehicles allowed' signs. Even in the middle of the night it is illegal to cycle trough he spooky quiet High Street.
    There is virtually no cycle parking along the High street, only at the nodes. Provision is particularly poor in the middle by the Sainsbury supermarket.

  • Anstey Hall: convert (partially) to Hotel 12/0504/FUL

    Created by Rohan Wilson // 0 threads

    Documents are completely inadequate for this listed building. I submitted this objection:
    This comment is on behalf of Sustrans, the charity that’s enabling people to travel by foot, bike or public transport for more of the journeys we make every day.

    The application form indicates that there is currently no cycle parking and that none is intended. This is unacceptable - the development must conform to the Council's standards in quantity, location and type.

    There are insufficient graphic details on which to assess the application.

  • House conversion to 3 flats 12/0508/FUL

    Created by Rohan Wilson // 0 threads

    This comment is on behalf of Sustrans, the charity that’s enabling people to travel by foot, bike or public transport for more of the journeys we make every day.

    We note that 3 Sheffield stands are shown within the cycle shelter - good provision for a site which is on the city's Signed Primary Cycle Network. It is important that they should not be installed too close to the rear wall, and that the spacing between each and between stands and side wall should meet the City Council's standards - see Cycle Parking Guide.

    Only 3 bins are shown - is this acceptable, for recycling etc?

  • Special Education Unit, Ascham Road

    Created by Rohan Wilson // 0 threads

    This comment is on behalf of Sustrans, the charity that’s enabling people to travel by foot, bike or public transport for more of the journeys we make every day.

    The documents state that cycle parking is to be increased to 4 spaces (staff) and 6 spaces (pupils), but gives no indication as to its type, location, or whether it is sheltered.

    We consider the quantity to be provided seems unambitious, especially considering the site is in a quiet street close to routes on the city's signed primary cycle network. The cycle parking should be of Sheffield stands, convenient to the building's entrances, in a clearly visible location, and sheltered. See the City Council's Cycle Parking Guide for information.

    http://www.cambridge.gov.uk/ccm/content/transport-and-streets/cycling-and-walking/cycle-planning-and-policy.en

    We recommend that more spaces should also be provided, better to encourage a healthy alternative to car use. We note that the site is a listed building whose character and surroundings are not likely to be enhanced by full occupation of the "ample" car parking mentioned in the D+A Statement.

    11/0008/FUL was recently rejected by the Planning Committee but the club only have the lease till the end of the 2013 season having sold it to developers. It's likely some kind of development will occur on this site since the club needs the money.

  • 11/1501/FUL from pub to Sikh Temple/ meeting place, Arbury Road

    Created by Rohan Wilson // 0 threads

    The Grove Pub. Transport Statement recognises that 19 cy spaces should be provided (1 per 15sqm public space), states they are in "garage" but details not given, just assumed space available. Needs closer look. TRICS database for a Leeds Sikh Temple shows no cycling, 16.4% walking, 3.6% public tpt.

  • Change of use, office to study rooms: 89 Regent Street

    Created by Rohan Wilson // 1 thread

    This comment is on behalf of Sustrans, the charity that’s enabling people to travel by foot, bike or public transport for more of the journeys we make every day.

    The site is proposed as study rooms for students aiming to enter university. Thus they would be old enough to cycle independently within Cambridge, for example between their places of residence and the various study buildings.

    Remarkably, it is suggested (Planning Statement) that the students might park their bikes on Station Road where cycle parking is available, and might be augmented, and walk to the proposed site. This is a distance of 700m, taking 10 minutes at a normal walking pace plus any waiting time to cross the East Road/ Regent Street junction. Any student with a cycle at Station Road would be likely to wish to use it to continue to the proposed site, if parking arrangements provided there were reasonably convenient and secure.

    We are told that the Regent Street site is closer to the student residences than Free School Lane, but no more definite information is given as to how far the residences are from the proposed site or from Station Road.

    The city's cycle parking standards are presumably set to reflect normal levels of demand from staff and students, and no explanation is given as to why "very few students have bicycles".

    The access to the suggested cycle parking in a narrow yard at the rear of the building is presumably the gated passageway to its north. This is not made clear, nor is it clear whether there are steps to be negotiated. It seems impossible that more than perhaps a dozen bicycles could be parked in the yard most of whose width appears to be less than a bike's length, leaving no room for daily or emergency access with the parking arrangement indicated.

    The transport aspects of this proposal have not been examined in sufficient detail for their impact to be properly assessed, but it is certain that there is insufficient space for the level of cycle parking required. There appears to be no disabled access. We therefore object.

  • Use change to Children's Gym: 34 Clifton Road

    12/0342/FUL 12 cycle spaces indicated but space looks inadequate (no dimensions or layout shown)

    This comment is on behalf of Sustrans, the charity that’s enabling people to travel by foot, bike or public transport for more of the journeys we make every day.

    The site is on a local cycle link and thus it is reasonable, in the context of Cambridge, to anticipate a high proportion of parents and children arriving by bicycle. Indeed, bearing in mind the limited car parking available we would recommend that a travel plan strongly promoting cycle access for staff and users be required.

    We object because we do not believe that the cycle parking space(s) allocated are consistent with the stated aim and the need to achieve high cycling levels. In particular, tagalongs, trailers and large carrier-bikes are likely to form a high proportion of customer cycles. The dimensions of the small, unsheltered enclosure (designed as a bin store in the current use of the site?) and a proposed layout are not given but look insufficient, and include a narrow entrance.

    If cycles for say 30% of 18 customers, their children and 8 staff were to arrive by bike (say 3 staff, 6 adult customers and 8 children during a single class) then allowing a 50% margin for changeover between classes, space would be needed for a variety of types of bike and trailer to accommodate some 3 staff, 9 adult and 12 children customers.

    This sort of calculation and the detail of the use of the cycle parking spaces do not seem to have been presented by the applicant, and should be required and assessed before the application is determined. We suggest that at least one car space would have to be used to accommodate sufficient cycles on this site.

  • Planning application at Addenbrooke's "Titanic" MRC building for new cycle sheds

    Created by Heather Coleman // 1 thread

    I've just come across
    http://idox.cambridge.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=LZDOOTDX07B00

    Basically, it's an area which was surveyed in the summer, where we identified that the current cycle parking was rubbish.

    They are planning to improve the spacing, and make it secure sheds, but at the cost of reducing the number of spaces, which oddly I inspected the other lunchtime and all were full apart from the "wheelbenders at 30cm spacing", from 178 spaces to 146 spaces. When we did our survey, we felt more spaces could be fitted in, at a better spacing, than what is currently there. There is more detail in the Design and Access Statement regarding the lighting than there is about the actual sheds, how you get in and out of them, and whether you can easily park a bike in them.

  • Bike Parking Shortage at Hills Rd 6th Form College

    Created by Michael Cahn // 1 thread

    Rather than providing adequate cycle parking for their pupils this Sixth Form college is discouraging cycling and increasing the likelihood of cycle theft. The bikes that were previously attached to these railings are now left on the opposite side of the road where they are not so securely parked. See http://cambridge.cyclestreets.net/location/27865/ #27865 or #27866

    Although some cycle parking does seem to have been provided: http://cambridge.cyclestreets.net/location/28093/ #28093, #28092 it is clearly not enough
