Park Mark - Safer Parking Scheme

Park Mark Safer Parking is a Government backed nationwide scheme which is police assessed.  By joining the scheme Parking Management has shown a commitment to our customers to reduce both the fear of crime and criminal activity in parking facilities.  The scheme is: -

  • An initiative of the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO)

  • Managed by the British Parking Association (BPA)

Simple Tips & Advice for reducing vehicle crime

Help prevent car crime, please remember to:

  • Park in well lit areas

  • Lock all doors 

  • Close all windows 

  • Lock boot lids 

  • Remove all valuables from view

Although these are common sense precautions, around 20% of all vehicles parked have one or more doors left unlocked.
