Dedicated locations for cycle parking is a matter for local authorities. In 2020 the Department published guidance on cycle infrastructure design, which includes guidance for local authorities on providing cycle parking.

Local authorities, in partnership with e-scooter rental operators, are responsible for running the e-scooter trials and are able to control how they run in their areas. This can include specifying where e-scooters should be parked or docked.
