[UPDATE 17.6.22: I'm expanding this caption following a response today [see: #175252] from the same CYC planning enforcement officer who responded to my complaint about the spacing of these racks with: "This would be a very minor breach resulting in no harm so it wouldn’t be expedient to pursue with enforcement action." There seems to be no understanding that to tackle climate change, ill-health (mental and physical), isolation, obesity, etc takes a range of interventions from a range of departments and professionals thinking and working collaboratively. Yesterday was Clean Air Day. Does this planning enforcement officer or the team not make the connection between the importance of enabling and supporting people to make active and clean travel choices and the killer that is air pollution? Or are CYC planning professionals still unaware of the dangers to all of us of unclean air? The Government ( says: "In the UK, air pollution is the largest environmental risk to public health." ] [Image taken: 12.8.20] Monks Cross retail park, Monks Cross, Huntington, York. There is a highly visible cycle route round most of the perimeter of this cluster of outlets. But the racks outside Primark are just 61cm apart. I haven't even been shopping and my panniers fill the space between the two Sheffields such that I had to push the cycle in.

Other image spaced this closely, but of the toastrack design, and with linking rails/upstand you have to push or lift your cycle over: #174330
