The refurbished multi-storey car park at Wembley Central has been awarded ‘Park Mark’ status. The accreditation, given to car parks which meet nationally-recognised safety standards, is another achievement for the Wembley Central development being delivered by St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist.
Wembley Central’s 231-space car park is located in London Road and forms part of St. Modwen’s £90m redevelopment of Wembley town centre. ‘Park Mark’ status is awarded through the Safer Parking Scheme, an initiative led by the Association of Chief Police Officers and the British Parking Association.
Killian Morris, Senior Development Manager at St. Modwen, said: “This is great news for local people. Park Mark status means the police are happy that measures are in place to create a safe environment for car park users.”
St. Modwen has also introduced new, short stay car parking charges of £1 for up to two hours and brought in special season ticket rates for parking by the week, month or quarter.
Last week, St. Modwen gained planning consent for the final phase of Wembley Central, which will comprise a new Travelodge hotel, residential apartments, additional retail and an improved entrance to Wembley Central’s tube and train station.
When complete, the total regeneration scheme will provide 132,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space. It also has 24,000 sq ft of offices at Ramsey House, and Central Apartments – a development of 259 private apartments including 85 affordable homes. TK Maxx, the Co-operative Food, T-Mobile and Iceland are all open and trading at Wembley Central.
