STEETON residents living near Airedale Hospital could soon be spared the misery of parked cars blocking their streets. Residents-only parking zones could be introduced in Thornhill Road and surrounding streets as a result of recent changes to Bradford Council rules. News of the possible respite came as a resident described how an an ambulance could not get past parked vehicles on Tuesday last week to reach a house on an emergency call.
