New car park is among safest

ONE of Sheffield’s newest car parks has been recognised as among the safest.

Just six months after opening, the 53-space, underground site at West Bar has received a ‘Park Mark’ from South Yorkshire Police.

It is the second such award for its owner, national car park operator Gallan Parking, after the company was accredited for a Park Mark at another of its sites in Stafford.

Part of the new £7.5-million Crown House offices at West Bar, the floodlit and regularly-patrolled car park in Sheffield has met stringent criteria set by the Association of Chief Police Officers.
