Pedestrian Area

Cheapside, Corn Market, part of Crown Street, Russell Street and Southgate form part of the Halifax town centre pedestrian area.

  • Vehicle access to this area is restricted.
  • This is to help make the town centre a safe, secure and attractive place for pedestrians.


No vehicle can enter between 10am and 4pm daily, unless exempt.

Vehicles are permitted access between 4pm and 10am for loading/unloading purposes only.

Deliveries - loading and unloading

  • This must be carried out before 10am or after 4pm. (Access will be restricted from 9.30am, to make sure vehicles have time to unload and exit the area before 10am.)
  • It should be a constant activity of heavy/bulky goods that cannot reasonably be carried from outside the restricted area.

Designated Loading bays can be found on all roads that surround the pedestrian area. For specific locations, please loading bays.


To help manage vehicle movements within the area, there are rise/fall bollards. These are in place to restrict access.

  • They will always be raised. At times they may be lowered due to a fault or for maintenance, but access is still restricted.
  • Access is given through the intercom system. Please be patient, the operator may be dealing with another request at another location.

Important: Once access is given, wait for bollards to be fully lowered before driving over them, do not tailgate. Cameras monitor the area and any damage to bollards, due to not waiting will be charged to the vehicle owner.

Formal parking restrictions

A 'No waiting at any time (yellow lines), no loading between 10am and 4pm' restriction is in place. This is throughout the area and is shown on the entry signs.


Enforcement of the area is undertaken whether the bollards are up or down.

Please note: A Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) may be issued to a vehicle if it is seen in the:

  • Restricted area between 10am and 4pm, without being authorised by Parking Services.
  • Restricted area between 4pm and 10am and;
    • not actively loading/unloading goods;
    • and has not been authorised by Parking Services.

  • Utility.

  • Security.

Also, for vehicles that need access to private off-street parking areas, such as behind businesses:

  • Access to move through the area will be granted, but these movements should be kept to a minimum.
  • Be aware that there is no parking exemption on the actual highway.

Note: All businesses in (or work in) the area are asked to inform their suppliers about the above.
