Last updated at 14:31, Tuesday, 28 February 2012
Car parks run by Carlisle City Council have all been judged safe and secure in a national scheme. Park Mark awards are granted under the Safer Parking Scheme by the British Parking Association.
It manages the scheme on behalf of the Associations of Chief Police Officers for England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
The 16 car parks to achieve the awards in this year’s awards are: Civic Centre; Swifts Bank; The Sands; Bitts Park; Devonshire Walk; Paddy’s Market; Lower Viaduct; Upper Viaduct; Town Dyke Orchard; Cecil Street, William Street, Stanwix; Rosehill; Central Brampton; Union Lane Brampton and Gilsland, with two other car parks at Lowther Street and Talkin Tarn having received similar awards in June 2011.
Recent improvement works have been undertaken in Civic Centre and Bitts Park car parks.
