Written answers (Question to Communications)

My Department currently has 86 bicycle parking spaces. Under my Department’s Resource Efficiency Action Plan a staff survey on how staff commute to work will be undertaken with a view to promoting more sustainable options and to feed into the design of our new HQ due for completion in early 2023.

I understand that information on the total number of bicycle spaces across the Civil Service is not available as these facilities are managed on a local basis by individual Departments.
