A further seven car parks within Tendring have been awarded a top safety accreditation.

The Tendring District Council (TDC) facilities have renewed their Safer Parking Award Scheme Park Mark from the British Parking Association.

Each car park is assessed on the quality of lighting, cleanliness, security measures and quality management, to give an overall review of safety.

The car parks which have received the award in the 2021 phase two review are: Victoria Place, Brightlingsea; High Street, Wellesley Road, Hazlemere Road, Alton Park Road, and Martello car parks in Clacton; and Church Road, Walton-on-the-Naze.

Michael Talbot, TDC Cabinet Member responsible for car parks, said the accreditation showed what quality amenities they were.

“All who use our car parks, residents and visitors, can have confidence in them knowing that these sites have the Park Mark,” Councillor Talbot said.

“I am pleased to have these awards renewed, and once again my thanks go to our Parking Services team for their hard work in maintaining high standards.”

The seven Park Marks are in addition to eight renewed in a phase one review earlier in the year, bringing the total held by council car parks to 15.
