Herefordshire Council has agreed to spend up to £30,000 to purchase and install green cycle shelters that will be located in Hereford city centre as part of the Hereford City Centre Improvements (HCCI).

The cycle shelters are to be procured and installed through the Council’s
public realm contract with Balfour Beatty Living Places (BBLP) as outlined
within the 7 October 2021 Cabinet Member decision report which can be
viewed using the following link:

Balfour Beatty Living Places have been provided with a provisional instruction for £30,000 and have submitted a proposal to procure and install two green cycle shelters at a cost of £24,239.48, which includes a contractual fee.

A further proposal will be required to undertake supporting works by
Balfour Beatty Living Places in advance of installation. This will be funded and managed from the remaining budget for this element along with further funding from within the programme through the programme change process as part of the Marches LEP grant funding agreement.

These additional changes follow alterations to the city centre that took place last summer. These included new planting and trees, as well as new seating.
