Awards for car park safety

Five council car parks have received the Park Mark accreditation, which recognises they are safer places to park.

Park Mark is a national accreditation for safer parking which is assessed by the police and the British Parking Association (BPA).

The following car parks are certified by Park Mark, the safer parking scheme, for the third year running:

  • Herschel multi-storey
  • Hatfield multi-storey
  • The Grove car park, including Disabled Parking Accreditation
  • Buckingham Gardens car park
  • Harrow Market car park in Langley.

In order to achieve the Park Mark accreditation there are a series of criteria that have to be met to pass which includes crime prevention, management and maintenance of the facility, checking there are appropriate levels of surveillance, lighting, signage and cleanliness.
