Bournemouth Airport has successfully retained its Park Mark status, following a stringent re-assessment by the Police.
“This means that everyone parking their car at the airport can be confident that their car will always be parked in a safe environment and that we have strict measures in place for deterring criminal activity,” explains Paul Knight, Managing Director of Bournemouth Airport.
“We know that some companies are now offering a ‘meet and greet’ service at the Airport. However these organisations are completely unregulated and your car could be parked anywhere while you are away, often in an area which has no safety or security measures in place. The airport was first awarded the Park Mark status four years ago and maintaining this highly respected seal of approval from the Police is very important to us and our passengers,” he added.
The Park Mark Safer Parking Scheme is aimed at reducing both crime, and the fear of crime, in parking facilities. It is managed for the Association of Chief Police Officers by the British Parking Association and is supported by the Home Office. The award is given to parking facilities that have achieved the requirements of a risk assessment conducted by the Police and includes quality management, appropriate lighting, effective surveillance and a clean environment.
