Prestigious Park Mark Award for Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council
Bedworth Station & Pool Bank Street car parks have received the Park Mark award 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. Their assessments include 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 safe parking. Facilities that have received this award have seen a drop in vehicle-related crime of over 80%.
Dale Griffin, NBBC Facility Manager said: "NBBC Parking Services have worked closely over the years with Mathew Robinson and Mark English to maintain the high standards that are required for all NBBC car parks to achieve the Safer Parking Scheme Park Mark awards. I am always very proud when presented with the award certificates."
Matt Robinson BPA Area Manager said: “I am delighted that Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council has achieved the Park Mark award, demonstrating their hard work and commitment to providing a safe environment for users.”
Mark English, Designing Out Crime Officer, said "Another of Nuneaton & Bedworth’s car parks has been accredited with the Park Mark award. This has been achieved by using ‘safer streets’ funding from the Home Office, which was bid for by Warwickshire County Council on behalf of the borough council. Lighting, access control, and CCTV have all made this car park safer. It has been a pleasure working with Matthew Robinson and Dale Griffin."
