The requirement for cycling infrastructure is now standard practice for new developments or refurbishment projects in the UK, you will almost always find the requirement to provide secure bike storage facilities in planning requirements and transport plans for new developments in the UK. – Here is more info from GOV.UK!


Since 2009 we have worked with hundreds of customers to provide accessible, secure and bespoke cycle storage. Our range of shelters and canopies vary massively in size, from bike sheds that hold 4 to cycle compounds of 20 or more! 

Our shelters are available in numerous finishes including coloured powder and galvanised coated frames, with cladding options including security mesh, Perspex (PETG) and timber. Furthermore, the inclusion of bike racks, ground anchors, swing or sliding doors, door locks and lighting are available. Save space with optional built-in cycle racks, for example our semi-vertical cycle rack gives your shelter efficiency as well as organisation when storing your bikes.

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.’

It also refers to Sold Secure locks and ground anchors, cycle racks and cycle stands with multi-point locks.
