Bicycle Parking Spaces Required For All New Developments
09 May 2018

To promote cycling as a mode of transport and support Singapore’s car-lite vision, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) has introduced a new bicycle parking provision standard for all new developments, revealed the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) in a circular on Monday (7 May).

Under the new guidelines, developers of residential projects are required to provide a bicycle parking lot for every four or six housing units, depending on the zone where the project is located.

The new rule also applies to commercial developments such as offices, malls, hotels and factories, with the requirements varying depending on the gross floor area (GFA) of the development.

The ruling took effect yesterday and applies to any new application for new development, redevelopment and reconstruction works to URA.

“It is important for developments to provide sufficient and well-maintained bicycle parking spaces in order to facilitate more people to take up cycling as a commuting mode and to minimise indiscriminate parking in public places,” said the circular.

Meanwhile, bicycle parking spaces provided under the new requirement will be exempted from GFA computation.

“The GFA exemption will also apply to surplus provision of bicycle parking spaces over and above LTA’s minimum requirements if assessed by LTA and URA to be reasonable, given the context of the development.”

Moreover, the provision of end-of-trip facilities such as shower stalls, lockers and toilets can also qualify for GFA exemption for some development types.

“All other existing developments are also strongly encouraged to proactively provide bicycle parking spaces according to the new standards,” the circular added.
