Parking zones

A controlled parking scheme is a street or area where parking is organised in order to help residents park their vehicles. They are provided in areas where indiscriminate parking of vehicles not belonging to residents would otherwise make this difficult.

How does the scheme operate?

Most schemes operate during the working day from Monday - Saturday. The times of operation are shown on the signs for drivers entering the controlled parking zone area.

During this period many spaces are reserved for resident permit holders and visitor permit holders with a few provided for visitors to the area who do not have permits. Bradford Council has approved criteria to prioritise the implementation of such schemes.

Outside these hours and on Christmas Day and Good Friday parking is uncontrolled except on double yellow lines.

For more information on obtaining a parking permit please see the parking permits page.
