[Image taken 11.1.23] Clifton Moor Retail Park - the area with Dunelm at one end and Tenpin at the other, Stirling Road, York. The bollards are too close to the racks. 140cm is insufficient space even for a standard cycle. When reversing (not easy if your cycle is heavy/laden/has a dependant onboard) the bollard is an obstruction. Not everyone can lift a cycle once or multiple times to reposition it. And even those who can some times or usually may not always be able to do so depending on their health, mobility or what their cycle is laden with on the day. It also seems there is no employee cycle parking at these units. Or perhaps there is but accessing it is not easy or takes too long? There's good natural surveillance from people passing - in daylight. But no protection from the weather. There is a lot of cycle parking on this site. On 11.1.23 the York Walking and Cycling Officer and I met a representative of the company responsible for the maintenance of the site. We spent two hours here. It was cold, very cold, but I dare to hope productive. There is scope for more cycle parking, and better spaced to accommodate larger, longer rigs, and people who need more space to get on/off or to load/unload a dependant. And for it to be under cover. There's lots of seating. But not much greenery. The main issues though are getting onto and off the site from Stirling Road - Dunelm roundabout and Stirling Road - Tenpin roundabout Other image today and links: #189401.
