The Kirkgate Shopping Centre cuts parking prices after traders complain

CAR parking price wars broke out in Bradford today as a second city centre shopping centre slashed its charges.
Since The Broadway shopping centre drastically cut its parking fees by 70 per cent in March to £3 a day in the week and £1.50 a day at the weekend, stallholders at Kirkgate Market say customers have been steering clear of the Kirkgate Shopping Centre car park - their closest parking.
The Kirkgate parking had for the past two months been out of step with its new rival, charging £10 all day Monday to Saturdays and a comparable £1.50 for the day on Sundays - prices that had been in effect for the past six years.
But bosses at the long-standing shopping centre, which also houses the Bradford Council-run market, have now reviewed their prices and revealed significant cuts - particularly to long-stay and Saturday charges.
The move, which takes effect today, means parking at the Kirkgate is now cheaper than Broadway for short stay, comparable to Broadway for mid-length stays, and only more expensive when it comes to long-stay.
It equates to massive cuts of 60 per cent from £10 to £4 for all-day parking, and from £4.10 to £1.50 on a Saturday for up to four hours of parking.
Stallholder Yvette Hardy, of Hardy's Jewellers, which has been in existence in the Kirkgate Market for 30 years, welcomed the changes, describing it as a "step in the right direction".
