Bradford District Profile

Bradford District covers an area of approximately 37, 000 hectares, contrasting busy urban centres with both densely populated residential and remote, sparsley populated rural communities within the 30 electoral wards. The 2011 census recorded a total population of 522, 452 people and 208, 383 dwellings.

Bradford City Centre is currently undergoing significant regeneration and is fast becoming a cosmopolitan area with a cafĂ© culture and thriving nightlife. It boasts the award-winning National Museum of Photography, Film and Television, the Alhambra Theatre, with Art Deco exterior, and the Leisure Exchange. Bradford’s University and College attract 30,000 students (2,600 from overseas). During the day up to 250,000 non-resident visitors come into the area for work and leisure.

Away from the City Centre, the District attracts tourists to Ilkley and Haworth – home of the famous Bronte sisters and the Keighley and Worth Valley Light Railway – as well as the tourist attraction of Saltaire, Salts Mill, and Shipley Glen.

Bradford is also the home to major sporting teams and venues such as the world famous Bradford Bulls Rugby League Club and Bradford City Football Club.

West Yorkshire Police work alongside the Metropolitan District Council and many other partners to promote community safety and provide an enjoyable reassured visit to the City Centre. The Best Bar None licensing scheme, City Centre Beat, Big Fish, CCTV monitoring and the Students and Safer Housing project (SASH) are a few of the strategies operating.

The District comprises a number of large housing estates, some of which are the Country’s most socially deprived wards; much work is taking place to raise the profile of these areas. The Trident project has invested much needed European funding to address the low educational attainment rates and high unemployment within its designated catchment area.

The constantly evolving population is ethnically, religiously and socially diverse with 63.9% identifying themselves as being ‘white British’ and 36.1% ‘non-white’, as many people from around the world choose to make the Bradford District their home, with Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh and many other faiths represented across the District. The town of Keighley along with the West Bowling, Marshfields, Little Horton, Great Horton, Leeds Road and Barkerend areas are home to a substantial community originating from the Asian sub continent. The Cornwall Road area near to the football ground hosts a predominately Bangladeshi community. A large African-Caribbean community lives in the Little Horton and Ripleyville areas. There are also clusters of Refugees and European Communities being established in the District along with local authority provided and maintained sites for the Travelling Community.

Many festivals - such as religious and music are peacefully celebrated throughout the year, attracting visitors from across the world.
