People's Parking is primarily aimed at improving parking for customers by enabling people to find a car park which specifically meets their needs. In order to qualify for the general accreditation car parks must meet the following criteria:
Safely lit - Car parks must be to a specified luminance to
ensure the car park is bright and people can see where they are going.
Clean - Graffiti must be removed within a reasonable time
scale and litter removed regularly.
Safe pedestrian access - People should be able to move easily
between the parking facilities and amenities. Pedestrian routes should also be well marked, particularly where there are multiple exits and they should be kept free of clutter.
Good signage - Signage must be provided to identify entrances and exits, directions to lifts, stairwells, payment machines or meters and clear signposting from the car park entrance directing people to the location of specialist bays e.g. disabled or parent and child.
Designated bays enforced - It is essential that where different bays are reserved for different groups of people, only those people park in them.
