Six of Bassetlaw Council’s 20 car parks have been awarded the Park Mark award for safer parking.
Park Mark is an award given by the police to car parks that have achieved the standards of the ‘Safer Parking Scheme’ risk assessment conducted by the police.
This scheme is designed to reduce crime and the fear of crime in car parks.
“These car parks have measures in place that deter criminal activity and create a safer environment for both you and your vehicle,” said parking management officer, Denis Scaife.
“Newgate Street West, Caste Hill, Town Hall and Queen Street in Worksop and New Street and Chancery Lane North in Retford have been given the award so far.”
“We’re expecting others to be given the award soon.”
