St Marks Shopping Centre recieves the DPA

Posted in General News on Monday, June 19th, 2017

St Marks Shopping Centre, in Lincoln, has now received the Disabled Parking Accreditation (DPA) in recognition of the accessibility of both its ground level, and multi-storey carpark. The DPA is now a Certified Mark and it is the only accreditation which a car park can possess as a guarantee of their accessibility. Valerie Johnson, Centre Manager at St Marks said: ‘’This is a fantastic achievement for the centre and we’re really pleased to be recognised with the accreditation. We pride ourselves on having accessible car parking for all of our customers.”

DMUK is proud to announce that there are now nearly than 500 car parks, around the UK, which have been awarded the DPA as a mark of their accessibility. For a car park to receive the accreditation it has to meet very specific criteria in a number of areas including the size of the accessible bays, bay markings, the accessibility of payment machines, clear signage, good lighting and disabled bay enforcement.
