Broadwalk Centre has the edge after retaining Park Mark award
Parking facilities at The Broadwalk Centre in the London Borough of Barnet have once again been accredited with Park Mark having demonstrated the highest standards across their operations.
Park Mark® is the accredited logo of the Safer Parking Scheme, which is given to parking facilities that have achieved the requirements of a risk assessment conducted by the Police and the British Parking Association (BPA). The assessment includes management and maintenance of the facility, checking that there are appropriate levels of surveillance, lighting, signage, and cleanliness. All these are known to reduce the opportunity for crime and thus create a safer environment for the motorist and their vehicle.
Car parks with the Park Mark award can use signage featuring the distinctive Park Mark tick, so that drivers know exactly where to go for safer parking. Facilities that have received this award have seen a drop-in vehicle-related crime of over 80%.
Angela Brooks: General Manager at the Broadwalk Centre said: “I am delighted that our car park at the Broadwalk Centre has been awarded Park Mark accreditation. We are proud to support the Park Mark award initiative and are pleased to provide welcoming car parks to all our visitors.
Antony Powell: BPA Area Manager said: “I am delighted that car park at the Broadwalk Centre in Edgware has once again received Park Mark accreditation. This award demonstrates the centre management team's hard work and commitment to providing a safer environment for all of its visitors.”
P.C. Steve Downing: Met. Police Designing Out Crime Officer and Park Mark Assessor said: "Following a thorough review under BPA Park Mark accreditation guidance, I was delighted to see this site retain its Park Mark award for a further two years. With their continued emphasis on the safety and security of those using this car park, it is clear that this is helping to reduce the opportunity for anti-social behaviour, crime and disorder to occur."
