Our sheds help you comply with planning, achieve quality accreditation and meet sustainability criteria
UK nationwide planning policy promotes sustainable transport like cycling. This is part of an overall national strategy towards sustainability, reduced carbon emissions, better air quality and improved public health.
London borough planning regulations require that all developments provide secure, integrated, convenient and accessible cycle parking facilities in line with guidance set out in the London Cycle Design Standards.
The London Plan 2021, Policy T5 Cycling is designed to improve the health and quality of life of Londoners by reducing emissions from transport and ensuring an efficient use of limited road space as London grows.
Policy T5 Cycling
Policy T5 Cycling includes a clause that secures the provision of appropriate levels of cycle parking:
Clause A2 ensures that cycle parking is fit for purpose, secure and well located. Developments should provide cycle parking at least in accordance with the minimum standards set out in Table 10.2
Across the country
The strategy is not unique to London, local authorities across the country are adopting aspects into their local development framework for planning.
Here’s how we meet sustainability criteria and standards.
We work with responsible suppliers sourcing certified sustainable materials from within the UK. We only ever use sustainably sourced timber from the UK or imported by boat from Canada and Scandinavia.
- Living Roofs
Beautiful and sustainable green roofs delay run-off from stormwater, reduce local pollution and minimise the urban heat island effect. Our living roofs provide a habitat for wildlife.
- Environmental Care
We take care of all on-site vegetation, wildlife and water tables. Our sheds can be used for rainwater harvesting and our green roofs are drought tolerant.
- Waste Minimisation
We separate construction waste streams for recycling and minimise waste where possible by ordering optimal timber lengths.
- Longevity Through Quality
Long lasting products are better value for money and reduce the need for additional energy in manufacturing and transportation. Other bike sheds age prematurely while our sheds are designed to last.
- Air Quality
A good bike shed keeps your bikes safe and dry, right where you need them. A bike is quicker during rush hour, healthier and cheaper than driving. Cycling is 100% greener, saving 3 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually (per 10,000 miles/year).
Planning for biodiversity
Our living green roofs reduce local pollution and minimise the urban heat island effect.
The Environment Act 2021 includes a provision for biodiversity net gain to be a condition of planning permission. At the local level some authorities are already making biodiversity net gain part of their Local Plans.
