    Suffolk Design: Streets Guide

    Our consultation is for a new Streets Guide, which will assist designing streets for new residential developments especially by promoting walking and cycling.

    You are invited to comment on the Suffolk Design: Streets Guide by completing the survey.

    The consultation will run from 16 December 2020 until 5pm 10 February 2021.

    What we are consulting on

    This emerging guidance will assist with the design of new residential developments showing how best to create sustainable transport layouts that promote walking and cycling

    The District, Borough and County Councils of Suffolk have been working to improve the design new development through the Suffolk Design initiative. As part of this programme, the County Council commissioned Stantec to produce a new Street Guide to update guidance for residential streets.

  • Home Cycle Lockers

    Phil Wigglesworth // 1 thread

    (I never quite understood the way this works, I just want to ask a question, there's no issue)

    Does anyone have any experience of the various "Cycle Locker" type storage you can buy? I'm fed up with juggling cars and bikes, so I think it's time my bikes had a separate place to reside, and a secure locker or two would seem to fit the bill.

    Something like these:
    I'm looking at commercial-strength stuff as I doubt anything less will be secure enough.

    I'm looking for anyone who's bought them or used them, or similar. Is there anything I need to know before I order?

  • Street Cycle Parking

    Motion for Camcycle AGM 2016: Street Cycle Parking

    Providing secure places to park bicycles is a simple and effective way to encourage cycling by making people on bikes feel welcome. In some areas of Cambridge residents have got used to all the spare street space being allocated to the storage of motor vehicles and very little for bikes. The result has been badly parked bikes cluttering hallways, clinging to drainpipes and other street furniture. The experience on Thoday Street where some on-carriageway racks have been installed is a good example of how the problem can be addressed.

    Camcycle resolves to:
    1. Champion the replacement of on street car parking with cycle parking where it is clearly needed
    2. Identify streets where this should and can be achieved
    3. Work with local councillors to survey demand
    4. Where there is sufficient local support work with local councillors to prepare proposals for funding. For example, from the Local Highways Improvement fund.

    This motion was passed by 46 to one.

  • Downham Basil/Coriander/Bay 20mph

    Created by MJR // 1 thread

    Basil Drive, Coriander Road and Bay Walk are residential streets that probably should be a 20mph zone, at least to avoid sat-nav routing cars that way in preference to Rosemary Way.

  • Herbert Street

    Sam // 1 thread

    Herbert St is one of the closest streets to the centre of town that has free on-road parking. As a result, it's a little chaotic.

    Councillors are working towards resident only parking (and seem to have been for some time).

    Given that it's part of the cycle route from Midsummer common, and has small gardens, narrow pavements etc, is it worth seeing if there can be some cycle stands added or some other improvements at the same time?

    There are some by the co-op on Chesterton Road, of which about half seem to be used by residents.
