Purchase of Green Cycle Shelters as part of the Hereford City Centre Improvements (HCCI)

Cabinet Member Infrastructure and Transport took a decision 7 October 2021 to approve the progression of the HCCI project. This included a provision for the installation of city green cycle shelters.

A design process to identify the type of green cycle shelters to be purchased has been undertaken which has included consultation with the Cabinet Member Infrastructure and Transport.

BBLP’s have sought the following quotations for the supply of green cycle shelters.

Supplier Quotation
1 £22,070
2 £20,270
3 Declined to quote.

Whilst it is noted that supplier two offers a lower cost, the first supplier has been selected on the basis of quality, consistency with other street furniture materials, lower maintenance requirement and extended life cost and is therefore considered to represent better value for money.

A further BBLP proposal is to be provided which includes installation costs for a concrete base and power supply to allow lighting in the shelters. Additionally tree pruning will be required over one of the shelters to allow the sedum to flourish. A proposal and permit to carry out this work is to be provided. These works will be managed within the allocated budget.
