Secured Car Parks

A scheme that lists the car parks that have been awarded the "Park Mark Safer Parking" award by the British Parking Association and the Association of Chief Police Officers. To achieve this award, car parks must fulfil certain criteria designed to deter criminal activity and anti-social behaviour, such as supplying closed-circuit camera coverage, an open-plan layout, proper lighting and regular patrols. Car parks must be inspected every year to remain on the scheme.
