Three car parks across Aylesbury Vale have retained their Park Mark status following a re-assessment by inspectors.

The Exchange Street car park in Aylesbury, Cornwalls Meadow car park in Buckingham and the Wendover Library car park were all inspected and assessed by the British Parking Association and Thames Valley Police last month before being given the award.

Achieving a Park Mark, the national award for car parks, means that all three car parks are found to be fit for purpose, well managed and safe for customers to use.

Councillor Brian Roberts, cabinet bember for civic amenities said: “Local residents quite rightly expect us to look after our car parks as well as doing all we can to ensure they are as safe and secure as possible.

“The awards confirm to residents that we are dedicated to providing top quality parking services.”

The assessments include management and maintenance of the facility and checks that there are appropriate levels of surveillance, lighting, signage and cleanliness.

Eight other council-run car parks in Aylesbury have also achieved the Park Mark award - Upper Hundreds, Friarscroft, Walton Street, Walton Green, Hampden House, Hale Street, Anchor Lane and Whitehall Street.
