In front of certain shops, places are reserved for the loading and unloading of delivery vehicles.

These zones are identified by a marking on the ground and by panels of road marking. These panels mention the hours that parking for vehicles others than the delivery vehicles is prohibited.

A shopkeeper can introduce a demand for such a delivery zone at the Technical Traffic Service of the Police of Bruxelles-Capitale-Ixelles.

This service will then make a feasibility study by visiting the applicant.

It is however rare that such a demand is granted to a single shopkeeper. The service tries to group the demands for the same street, in order to maintain places of parking there.
