Why was a parking scheme introduced in the Craven Vale area?

Zone I was introduced in response to complaints about the high number of vehicles parked in the area all day. This was making parking difficult for local residents.

The council proposed a scheme which aimed to address double parking, parking on pavements and on double yellow lines. The council wanted to improve:

  • safety for pedestrians
  • traffic flow
  • access for emergency vehicles

Based on feedback from residents and businesses, it was decided to introduce a scheme that would include bays for use by residents and their visitors, businesses and services.

On 14 March 2017, the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee approved a residents parking scheme for Craven Vale. A full scheme was agreed, which would operate seven days a week 9am–8pm.

The committee report has been archived on the Council and democracy section of our website.
