Cambridge University is planning to refurbish 1 Regent Street for its Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL).
Currently there are very anti-cycling 'No cycle parking' notices along the railings, which is hardly an example of sustainability leadership.
We should use this as an opportunity to get cycle parking along here.
The ongoing problem of cycle theft in the city.
Cambridgeshire County Council has published proposals and consultation to introduce a residents’ parking scheme in the streets around York Street and New Street.
This is a long-overdue scheme.
There are a couple of issues:
- Building support for the scheme - residents' parking proposals have a key strategic role in reducing traffic, by almost eliminating circulation by drivers speculatively looking for parking.
- Making the case for the scheme in the face of opposition in a few streets because of a reduction in spaces where there is currently parking on both sides of the street (which means domination of the space for private motor vehicle storage).
- At last, elimination of pavement parking and the ability to enforce any pavement overrun.
- No cycle parking is proposed.

Many issues here about cycle parking - not only the station itself but the CB1 area
There have been problems before with unsatisfactory cycle parking and obstruction of the paths across this busy green space. New people are providing the ice rink this year though.
Relocation of the existing liquid nitrogen (LN2) tank, Denios unit and cycle parking facilities.

Site Plan shows "Cycle Storage" adjacent to the hotel? site to the east.
Red line extending to Robinson Way (north of Francis Crick roundabout), Puddicombe Way and including half the Forum area suggests intention to secure good transport links.
Essential to remedy poor walking/cycling layout at foot of busway/cycleway bridge, and secure easy access to (across?) the bus/cycleway's extension to The Forum, where the intention may be to continue cycleway on southern side only of busway.
Standard Consultation Expiry Date Thu 06 Aug 2015
Sustrans invites comments by 30 June on its draft chapters of a "Cycle-friendly Design Manual".
This document, once published, could influence local authorities to provide better, safer cycle routes, and so persuade people who are not yet cycling their every day journeys to do so.
Your comments please to email@example.com by 30 June.
Sustrans' "Handbook for cycle-friendly design", intended as a non-aligned expression of standards and processes for cycling provision, for public and specialist guidance, was published at the same time as the Campaign's "Making Space for Cycling". It received some criticism from members of CCyC.
Sixteen draft new chapters are at
http://www.sustrans.org.uk/our-services/what-we-do/route-design-and-construction and comments invited.
Subjects include: new developments; parking; design concepts; network planning; community involvement; signing; cycle-rail integration; and more...
Deadline for comments: 30 June

Noticed recently there are a good number (>15) of bikes that look abandoned - rusty & flat perished tyres, at Trumpington P&R
I've not seen any notes about any clear outs for years
"Proposed residential development to erect 10 studio flats, following the demolition of existing building on site. | Victoria Road Cambridge Cambridgeshire CB4 3DU"
Cycle parking deficiencies
A planning application (14/1818/FUL) proposes to replace the road blockers with gates. The design has such a large gate it has to open to the left of the opening as seen from Manor St (see http://goo.gl/maps/j7Lfm), requiring 3 of the 5 cycle parking hoops (obscured by the trees and not in use in the photo) to be moved to the right of the entrance. They serve shops on King St and visitors to the Malcolm Place flats so moving them would take them significantly further from the needs they serve.
I am drafting an email to the planning department to include criticism of the gate design from my point of view as a local resident. I am also soliciting Campaign support on the cycle parking issue. I'll post a draft shortly.
Cycle parking as recently been installed on the pavement at one spot on Mill Road.
While new cycle parking is much-needed in this area, personally I feel this specific spot is unduly obstructive to pedestrians and the disabled.

I've had a wander around the Addenbrooke's campus again this lunchtime, counting bikes that were not in what I would call bike spaces.
ie not in a proper bike space, attached to a proper bike support.
so, all the ones attached to railings, trees, bike shed legs etc.
I've added the numbers to the last few times I've done this, back in 2011 & 2007
July 2014 Total bikes not in racks = 530
Oct 2011 Total was 526
Jun 2007 Total was 399
Mar 2007 Total was 289
I'll see if I can attach my map & numbers to this thread
As part of the station redevelopments, the existing cycleparking is being replaced through June-August 2014 with two-tier stacks 'with the same capacity as the current arrangements'
Cambridge City Council planning application 14/0713/FUL. Nursery to be demolished and replaced by housing
"14/0447/FUL | Change of use from motor bike show room to supermarket with cafe [without cooking facilities] and installation of air compressor unit. | 192 Green End Road Cambridge Cambridgeshire CB4 1RN"
Proposed building will have 3000 employees, 250 car parkign spaces and 900 bike parking spaces
Looks like they've just improved the cycle parking at Waterbeach railway station, doubling it to 24 bicycles.
This new development is almost finished, but there is no obvious sign of cycle parking on the frontage - which I believe may be for shops - yet (and the back area is obviously not publicly accessible at the moment).
Do we know what cycle parking is planned here?
Comment from highways:
"The application claims provision of 24 cycle parking spaces; however I am unable to locate the proposed spaces on the plans. Please require the applicant to show the proposed parking provision, with dimensions on the plans and submit same for comment by the Highway Authority prior to determination of this application."
I looked round this site when it was for sale - the building occupies almost the entire plot - I can't imagine how they would get 24 cycle parking spaces on site (let alone with bin storage as well). Highways point definitely needs addressing.
Closing date for comments 8th Jan.
