A leisure facility in Leicestershire has been awarded the Park Mark Safer Parking Award from the British Parking Association.

The presentation was made on Tuesday 19 March, at Meridian Leisure Park. Police Constable Stuart Clough from the Thorpe Astley and Braunstone Town Dedicated Neighbourhood Team was asked to present the award.

On presenting the award, PC Clough said; “We enjoy a close working relationship with the security team at Meridian Leisure Park and are only too pleased to have been involved with the presentation of this award.

“The award reflects their continued high standards and excellent work in making a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for their customers.”

Michael Gardner, British Parking Association Area Manager, said: “The Meridian Leisure Park has deservedly achieved the Park Mark Award yet again and this should be congratulated. This is testament to the hard work that goes on behind the scenes and a real sense of pride in maintaining the standards required. The 24/7 Security presence and quality of the staff are no doubt a very positive factor in maintaining standards for the benefit of their customers”.

Park Mark is awarded to parking facilities that pass a rigorous assessment conducted by the police and the British Parking Association. The assessments include management and maintenance of the facility, ensuring that there are appropriate levels of surveillance, lighting, signage and cleanliness.

This criteria is known to reduce the opportunity for crime and create a safer environment for the motorist and their vehicle. Park Mark and the Safer Parking Scheme are initiatives of the National Police Chiefs’ Council on behalf of the police service and are managed by the British Parking Association.

Personal safety and location have been cited as joint priorities when choosing where to park. There are nearly 5000 car parks with the Park Mark award throughout the UK which can be found on a designated website www.parkmark.co.uk
