PLANS have been drawn up for a new cycle centre at York Station on the site of a former parcels base.

Bishopthorpe-based Cycle Heaven has applied to City of York Council to set up the business, which would sell, hire ands repair bikes, at the former Red Star parcels office, with a decision on the proposals set to be made next month.

A statement submitted to the council by the firm said it wanted to create a “smart, modern retail unit” and build on the work carried out under the Cycling City York initiative to boost the number of people using bikes in the city.
