Provide safe parking

The Safer Parking Scheme is managed by the British Parking Association (BPA) on behalf of Police Crime Prevention Initiatives Ltd.

A Park Mark is awarded to parking facilities that have met the requirements of a risk assessment conducted by local police. These requirements mean the parking operator has put measures in place to help deter criminal activity and anti-social behaviour, thereby doing everything they can to prevent crime and reduce the fear of crime in their parking facility.

In joining the scheme and making safety a priority, we offer our customers the security of knowing that our car parks (currently 25 out of 26) have the Park Mark Award so have been vetted by the police and have measures in place to create a safer environment.

It also means that our car parks are independently assessed so we will be notified if we need to take action to ensure that our facilities remain at the same high standard.
