our council run car parks in Brighton & Hove have retained the coveted Park Mark Award for safer parking.
Car parks at The Lanes, Regency Square, Trafalgar Street and London Road were granted the ‘Park Mark’ Safer Parking status following an inspection by representatives from the British Parking Association and Sussex Police.
The Safer Parking Scheme is an Association of Chief Police Officers initiative which aims to reduce crime and the fear of crime in car parks.
The Scheme sets a national standard for UK car parks that have low crime and measures in place to ensure the safety of people and vehicles. The inspections cover lighting, surveillance, cleanliness and overall management and the awards are held for two years.
