This state-of-the-art lorry park offers enhanced security design features to reduce the possibility of criminal activity.  The site incorporates a bespoke intruder detection system designed by ESR Electrical that alerts the security staff to immediately react to any movement.  This linked to a very comprehensive monitored CCTV provides a fully integrated layered approach to security.

Sharon Henley, Northamptonshire Police Designing out Crime Officer said: “The owners of the Red Lion Lorry Park were very keen to ensure that the redevelopment of the lorry park met the highest security standards.


“They engaged fully throughout the planning process meeting the security planning conditions and going the extra mile to ensure a state of the art facility.  The Red Lion Lorry Park sets the benchmark for facilities of this nature and any future development which has police involvement will be expected to match these standards.”


 Zarfeen Sadrudin, Director of the Red Lion Lorry Park said: We are very pleased to have obtained this prestigious award. We are continually striving to improve the site, to offer the best experience to our customers and this award highlights our commitment to this.”


Peter Gravells, British Parking Association Area Manager, said: “I am delighted that the lorry park has achieved the award as it means operator is helping to deliver a safer environment for those using the facilities. It is a fantastic achievement and testament to the effective management and high standards being created.”
