No 'Hazards' at golf course Car Parks as they Scoop Security Award
Visitors to, The Lanes Golf Course & Driving Range, and Farnham Park Golf Course, can feel safer when leaving their vehicle for a round of golf. Both Council operated golf courses have been awarded the ‘Park Mark Award’ for 2011 following low crime rates and excellent security measures.
Park Mark is an award given by the Police to car parks that have achieved the standards of the, Safer Parking Scheme. This scheme is designed to reduce crime and the fear of crime in car parks.
South Bucks District Councillor Anita Cranmer, Portfolio Holder for Community, says, “We are proud to receive this award as we have worked very hard to make our car parks safe and user friendly. Improved CCTV and lighting, amongst other measures, have been installed but vehicle owners must continue to take valuables out of their car, such as their sat nav, mobile phone, bags and cases. Although acquisitive crime figures are decreasing year on year, it is still important vehicle owners remain vigilant.”
“Customers who use the ‘Park Mark’ accredited car parks can be confident that measures are in place to deter criminal activity and create a safer environment for both them and their vehicle. By using car parks that display the Park Mark Award you are supporting operators that have gone the extra mile to create a safer environment in which to park. ”
A further eleven South Bucks District Council car parks have also been awarded the ‘Park Mark Award’ for 2011.
