A large structure promoting Swadlincote's 'cycling legacy' may soon be able to be seen by motorists as they pass the town's leisure centre.
A steel fabricated family silhouette cycle structure could go on display on a grassed area at the entrance to Green Bank Leisure Centre, in Civic Way, in the town.
The display will depict the image of a man, a woman and two children cycling in a line.
It is part of South Derbyshire District Council's plan to create a 'cycling legacy' on the back of news that some of the world's top female cyclists raced through the area on Stage Four of the Aviva Women's Tour 2016.
This legacy will include creating a cycling hub at the leisure centre where commuters can store their bikes and use shower and changing facilities before heading to work.
The district council has applied to its own planning department to install the structure and the scheme was approved.
It will now go for final approval in front of the council's housing and communities committee on October 5. The council would not yet reveal the size or cost of the structure.
The structure will comprise four separate components for each character and will be positioned on concrete pads. It would screwed into place. It would be displayed as a piece of 'public furniture' and art outside of the leisure centre, said a spokesman for the council.
A report from the applicant to planning officers said: "The structure is of a size and design that would be in keeping with the character and setting of the surrounding area and would not result in an adverse visual impact.
"It would be set back from the highway and would be positioned on an open section of grass and would not give rise to the appearance of clutter in the street scene."
