Leading car parking operator, CitiPark’s Leeds Merrion Centre and first direct arena branch has been the first Multi Storey car park in the North of the country to receive the new and elite Park Mark Plus status by the British Parking Association.


Following the BPA’s well-regarded Safer Parking Scheme and Park Mark award, the new Park Mark Plus award recognises only the highest-quality car parks, with the award assessing a range of criteria, including services, operations, design and build.  To qualify for the award, car park’s must already have the BPA’s Park Mark award and meet the Disability Parking Accreditation criteria.


CitiPark operate across 19 car parks, with the flagship branch in Leeds completing an extensive multi-million pound redevelopment in 2015. With 1000 spaces, including 24 accessible bays and 19 EV chargers, the branch offers easy access to the adjoining Merrion Shopping Centre and surrounding Leeds Arena Quarter.


Other benefits include high-quality surfacing, a contactless payment system and a bespoke architectural lighting grid system which further enhances the external facade.


Ben Ziff, Managing Director for CitiPark said: “I’m delighted that our Leeds Merrion Centre and first direct arena branch is the first multi storey car park in the North to receive the national Park Mark Plus award.

“A huge amount of work went into the car park’s refurbishment to improve its functionality, and it is fantastic for the team to be rewarded for their hard work in ensuring our customers experience is as safe and easy as possible”.


Ryan Davey, Area Manager for the British Parking Association, added: “I am delighted that the refurbishment of CitiPark Merrion Centre has been recognised by the awarding of Park Mark Plus status reflecting the highest parking facility standards combined with exceptional customer service. We would like to extend our congratulations to the whole team at CitiPark.”
