Closed 17 Feb 2017

Opened 5 Jan 2017



Council seeks feedback on Cycle Parking Standards for Development

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council has launched a new document titled ‘Standards for Cycle Parking and associated Cycling Facilities for New Developments’ and is seeking feedback from developers, architects, engineers, the public and other interested stakeholders on the new cycle parking requirements for residential and non-residential development.

This document was presented to the Transportation and County Wide Movement SPC in December 2016.

Why We Are Consulting

Provision of secure origin and destination cycle parking is essential for supporting the development of cycling as a practical transport choice. The purpose of this document is to update existing guidance on the provision of cycle parking at new developments as part of the planning process, such that high quality cycle parking and cycling facilities are regarded as an integral part of a scheme and not just an add-on to meet minimum policy requirements.

The document outlines the general principles to be followed when locating cycle parking and associated facilities within a development and gives details of the preferred type of cycle parking stands and layouts.

The new document should be read in conjunction with:- 

  1. County Development Plan 2016-2022
  2. County Cycle Policy
  3. National Cycle Manual.

Submissions or observations with respect to the document may be made by:-

  • online on our Consultation Hub
  • by email to traffic@dlrcoco.ie by noon on February 17th, 2017.
  • in writing (clearly marked ‘Cycle Parking Standards’) to:

Senior Executive Officer
Municipal Services Department
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council
County Hall
Marine Road
Dún Laoghaire

What Happens Next

Once the public consultation is completed, a report will be brought forward to the Transportation and County Wide Movement SPC for final approval and for subsequent adoption by the County Council.
