SECURED BY DESIGN (SBD) BIKE STORAGE REQUIREMENTS
You may be required to meet SBD guidelines as part of your planning approval. This is often designated as a ‘secure bike store’ or ‘secure cycle store’ on layout plans and transport plans. Secured by Design requirements were updated in 2019 and provide guidance to the construction specification to help improve bike storage security and reduce theft.
With regards to cycle shelters, the current SBD criteria states;
‘External, open communal bicycle stores with individual stands or multiple storage racks for securing bicycles will be as close to the building as possible, but in any event within 50 metres of the primary entrance to a block of flats and located in view of active rooms (Note 56.3) of dwellings. The store must be lit at night using vandal resistant, light fittings and energy efficient LED lights.’
