With Park Mark accreditation, PCM (Parking Control Management) also ensure that our disabled bays are used by valid blue badge holders only.

We are proud to have passed the annual Park Mark car park inspection at The Fort – providing safer parking for all!

We want to make sure the Fort is working to become a more environmentally friendly shopping destination – even the smallest of changes can make a difference. So, to save on unnecessary electricity consumption, we are updating the way we operate our underground parking. Our underground car park will only operate at weekends, throughout peak seasonal periods and in the event of bad weather.
