Parking award for Monks Cross

MONKS Cross Shopping has won a Park Mark Safer Parking Award for another year for its car park.

The shopping centre has invested in a relining and pothole repair programme in mid-2012 and a similar programme is planned for 2013. It has also put in place measures that help to deter criminal activity and antisocial behaviour.

The award is given to parking facilities that have achieved the requirements of an assessment conducted by the police and the British Parking Association.

How can any cark park receive an award when it does not install chevron parking? One space lost vs reduced bashed doors and bumpers? When will we British change our attitudes?

This came as quite a surprise to me as well, Monks Cross does seem to have the tightest parking slots of all, they also use Parkingeye security who send out "Parking fines" at the drop of a hat and then follow them up with threatening letters even though they don't actually have any legal entitlement to "fine" or demand monies from anyone.

... meanwhile two thirds of the bus lane remains closed off for it's 3rd year at least now because it has sunk and the management don't want to pay out for it to be fixed, and there continues to be little done to promote cycling round the centre by means of educating pedestrians which bit is the footpath and which bit isn't (and likewise when the snow falls, clearing the cycle lane of the snow might be useful for once).

Goes to show where their priorities lie!
