The bicycle park in George Street car park offers secure undercover shelter for up to eight push bikes.

Harborough District Council has answered the call of residents for cycling improvements in the town centre following discussions with Lutterworth Town Council.

Another bicycle park will be installed in Station Road car park after the works to The Shambles pub are completed in the spring.

Cllr Darren Woodiwiss, Harborough District Council’s Cabinet lead for Environmental and Climate Change, said: “I am pleased we have been able to deliver more safe and secure bike storage for the people of Lutterworth as there was significant demand for it. Providing more places for bicycle parking is key to encouraging people to make sustainable travel choices for their local journeys. If we can cycle instead of drive, it is good for protecting our environment and gives a boost to our activity levels too.” 

This project has received £6,437 from the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

The UK Shared Prosperity Fund is a central pillar of the UK government’s Levelling Up agenda and provides £2.6 billion of funding for local investment by March 2025. The fund aims to improve pride in place and increase life chances across the UK investing in communities and place, supporting local business, and people and skills.
