Cycle storage in a garage
Where cycle storage is provided in a garage, adequate space must be provided to store both the bicycle(s) and the car(s) at the same time.
For double garages, it must be assumed that each garage space is occupied by a car. Storage areas above must be added to the typical minimum garage sizes below:
• 2.4 m × 4.9 m for a single garage
• 5 m × 5.2 m for a double garage
Cycle storage in a shed
Where cycle storage is provided in a shed, adequate space must be provided to store both the bicycle(s) and garden tools at the same time. A minimum of 1m2 is required for garden tools.
Additional space required for cycles
The minimum storage area required to store cycles on the floor, as defined by the New Metric Handbook, which includes space to allow the cycles to be moved independently.
Where a proprietary storage or hanging system is provided, the space requirements are flexible but the system must allow each cycle to be removed independently and meet all other criteria.
The technical manual will be updated accordingly at the next re-issue.
