Ilkley parking shake-up: final proposals on display

Final proposals for a parking shake-up in Ilkley are on show.

A list of the changes are being advertised by Bradford Council. 

They're also on display in Ilkley Library and at City Hall in Bradford. 

Residents can still object, but it has to be done in writing and before 12 noon on 1st March. 

The council started a review of parking in September and launched a public consultation.

The review was commissioned in response to long standing concerns over the impact of unregulated parking and excess demand for spaces caused in part by rail commuters.

A Bradford Council spokesperson, said:

“Ilkley’s parking problems are well documented.

“The town has become a major transport hub with commuters parking on residential roads which has meant residents have found it impossible to park outside their homes and parking spaces intended for shoppers are being used for all-day parking.

“An independent review of the existing parking issues in Ilkley was commissioned by the Council. It made a number of recommendations which the Council has consulted on.

“The comprehensive consultation gathered over 800 responses from online surveys and several drop-in sessions where over 2000 people attended.

“The proposals aim to allow local residents to park outside their properties, increase parking space turnover for shoppers and provide better parking facilities for disabled drivers.

“The Council also wants to encourage more sustainable and healthy travel like walking, cycling and public transport, which can reduce demand for parking in the town centre.”

The proposals include:

• On-street pay and display including both long stay and short stay
• A residents’ permit parking scheme
• Shared residents’ permit parking and pay and display parking
• A new taxi rank on Station Road
• New disabled parking bays
• Limited waiting areas
• No waiting at any time in new locations

the council says after the advertising period, there are a number of possible outcomes including abandoning the proposals, adjusting them and proceeding, or proceeding as outlined.

People can send their grounds for objection in writing by quoting reference CORP/PCD/CEB/403652 for waiting loading and parking, or CORP/PCD/CEB/403651 for tariffs via:

Post - City Solicitor, Legal and Democratic Services, City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council, City Hall, Bradford BD1 1HY

Email - legalobjections@bradford.gov.uk

This must be by no later than 12 noon on Friday, 1 March, 2019.
