Wharfedale and Aireborough station car park proposals welcomed
1:00pm Friday 1st November 2013 in News
A councillor has welcomed plans to improve “woefully inadequate” parking at railway stations in the district.
Jackie Whiteley (Con, Wharfedale), whose ward includes Menston and Burley-in-Wharfedale, said she was pleased funds had been allocated to the area in the West Yorkshire Local Transport Plan and the West Yorkshire Transport Fund.
Councillor Whiteley said: “Parking provision is woefully inadequate at the majority of local railway stations in Bradford and the resulting overspill into roads in the surrounding residential areas causes a nuisance to local residents and acts as a disincentive to travel on trains.
“The trend of granting planning permission for large developments will only exacerbate the problem.”
