MOTORISTS across Worcester can park with confidence at any of the city council’s 14 car parks after each was awarded a Park Mark under the Safer Parking Scheme.
The Safer Parking Scheme is a national standard for UK car parks which have a low crime rate as well as measures in place to ensure the safety of both people and of vehicles. These measures include the car park being clean, tidy and well-lit, with good signage.
To be awarded a Park Mark, each car park is assessed by specially-trained police officers. The Park Mark is awarded to the car park, not the organisation which runs it, as not all car parks may pass the rigorous tests.
But Worcester City Council is delighted to announce that every one of its 14 car parks has been given the award.
Coun Karen Lewing, vice chair of the council’s Environment Committee, said: “We are delighted to see that all of our car parks have once again achieved the Park Mark and I’d like to thank everyone who plays a part in ensuring our car parks are safe places where visitors and residents can park with confidence before enjoying everything our wonderful city has to offer. “
