  • Local Plan 2018 - creation and review

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 21 threads

    The Local Plan is being reviewed - which will be a big process over the coming two years. It's important that cyclists engage with this and ensure that deficiencies, such as lack of cycle parking, are fixed.

  • Access to Minster Quarter (Townscape Heritage Initiative)

    Created by MJR // 2 threads

    There was a Heritage Lottery Fund stage 1 project hoping to progress to stage 2 and work for 5 years from June 2014 to regenerate the "old town" around the Saturday Market Place. The initial draft contains no cycle measures but does mention cycle access policy, so may be persuaded to reinstate lost public cycle parking in places like opposite the old Post Office and might even be a way to fill in the missing link in National Cycle Network Route 1. The consultation papers are online at http://www.west-norfolk.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=26919 and open until 16 December.


    The key cycling problem in this area is the difficulty of accessing Saturday Market Place without passing through the poor junction at its east end and the lack of signs telling cyclists to use Priory Lane to reach SMP.

  • Access to High Street

    Created by MJR // 0 threads

    Cycling is currently banned in the High Street, resulting in some cycle parking being difficult to access legally and some useful routes across town (such as Union Lane to Baker Lane) being cut off.

    The ban was not enforced between roughly 2015 and 2018 because some required signs were not put back after restoration of the market places. We do not know of any significant increase in injury incidents during that time. Of course, the ban is widely flouted despite being enforceable again because it looks like a road, with a marked carriageway, and there is cycle parking provided on High Street.

    Access to the south end between SMP and Purfleet to avoid the narrow Queen Street (or worse, the A148) is probably more vital than the northern section where King Street isn't a bad alternative.

    Government policy since 1987 has been that such pedestrian areas should be pedestrian-and-cycle areas unless there's evidence of problems and provision of alternative routes. Norwich's pedestrian areas are now mostly pedestrian-and-cycle.

  • Contraflow access to Norfolk Street

    Created by MJR // 1 thread

    Better access to Norfolk Street and use of it contraflow would avoid some difficult junctions, especially the near-blind right turn out of Austin Street onto JKR eastbound.

    The ban on cycling was not enforced between roughly 2015 (renovation of the Tuesday Market Place removed some required signs) and 2018.

    This was in the CIF2 bid circa 2008 but was not delivered due to budget overruns on other aspects.

    The most important section is probably between Chapel Street and Paradise Lane, to enable access to cycle parking and complete a town centre loop route.

  • Cycle racks in Waterbeach

    Created by Paul Bearpark // 1 thread

    Waterbeach Cycle Campaign has received a Zero Carbon Communities grant from SCDC for installation of some badly needed cycle racks in the village centre. We have consulted with villagers about their preferences for their location and the Parish Council has approved the installation in those locations.

    We need to arrange for the installation

  • 20/02160/FUL: New 3 storey building (10 units), 4 Highworth Avenue

    Created by Rosamund Humphrey (Admin Officer) // 1 thread

    Proposed plan: Demolition of existing building and construction of a new 3 storey residential building comprising 10 units (net increase of nine) along with access, cycle parking and associated infrastructure. 

    Bike store for 14 cycles, unclear what kind of fastenings (Sheffield stands/other). Is it big enough to enable cycles in the furthest cycle spaces to manoeuvre in/out? Is the entrance wide enough to accommodate movement of adapted bikes?

  • Cycle parking needed on Ainsworth Street

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 0 threads

    Like many areas of Petersfield, Ainsworth Street has no cycle parking but there are bikes left along the pavements.

    Cycle parking should be provided.

    Every night, and during the day, there are always at least some spots of car parking unused. Therefore there is scope to remove a few spaces and install residential cycle parking, as per Thoday Street.

  • Refurbishment of 1 Regent Street

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 1 thread

    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.

  • York Street area residents' parking zone

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 1 thread

    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.

  • Ice Rink on Parker's Piece

    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.
