Bradford have come up with a plan to restrict parking on almost the whole of Keighley Road west side. This is on top of restrictions already proposed around the access road to the new development. This will greatly inconvenience people using the church for weddings and funerals and parents picking up at the school. It is also completely unnecessary as large vehicles are turning in and out of the new development without difficulty. It could also lead to overspill parking in nearby residential streets [full disclosure – I live in Gatesway].
If you want to oppose these new restrictions please contact Bradford Council via their website complaints system. You might also like to contact your Bradford Ward Councillors.

Further restricted parking on Keighley Rd is unnecessary.There have been no accidents or congestion that interfered with the flow of traffic.
Restricting parking near the fish shop will almost certainly see another facility in the village disappear.
Congestion in other parts of the village will occur on a daily basis as parents dropping off and collecting their children from school will look for alternative places. This will bring further congestion and dangers to side roads and estate roads around the village
There should be more concern for residents who actually live at the bottom of Keighley Road. If they can’t park where they have always been able to park , then they will have to park elsewhere in the village. There are a lot of terraced homes in the locality so the situation would add to the already congested situation around that area.
You have to take into consideration also that people who live in those flats may have children. How can you go shopping, come home and unload your shopping with a child in the car if you cant park outside? This poses as a serious safety risk because you cannot park anywhere near their own house. There is a roundabout and 2 zebra crossings very nearby which restricts being able to park anywhere nearby.
Also, the residents of those flats bought those houses knowing that they had parking outside. For sure, they would not have bought those flats if they ever knew that parking would be taken away.
If this is passed, it would drastically reduce the value of their homes which would be completely unfair, especially when the people who live there are first time buyers on the first ladder of their lives.
The road is wide enough at the bottom of Keighley Road to allow all the residents to park with ease. I hope you will consider my points and come to a positive resolution.
