CP Plus aid Dalkeith Council in town redevelopment

The parking operator CP Plus recently announced that after two years of negotiations, they had won a contract with Dalkeith Council, located in Midlothian, Scotland. The contract has a term of five years and will allow the company to provide parking management services to the entire town. Dalkeith Council had never before charged the residents of the town for parking their vehicles, however the members of the council made the decision to undertake a significant redevelopment project, which will allow them to better regulate the car parks in the town. The project is set to cost a total of £1.2million. As part of their contract with the Dalkeith Council, the parking management company CP Plus will be working on improving and refurbishing two of the town’s main car parks. The first, named North Wynd contains a total of 92 spaces for vehicles and will be reopened after its refurbishments in July of 2011. After it is open to the public once again, drivers will be able to enjoy one hour’s free parking. The second car park in Dalkeith, named St. Andrews, is expected to be renovated a few months later, and will be reopened to the people of Dalkeith sometime in November of 2011. In the next five years of partnership between Dalkeith Council and CP Plus, great improvements in the security of the town’s car parks will be implemented. Some of the security strategies include resurfacing of the grounds, the installation of Pay and Display machines for monitoring purposes, as well as the installation of kiosks. The head of development at the parking management company, Gavin Povey commented on the new partnerships, stating that the team at CP Plus are delighted to have won the five year contract with the council, given that they had faced such strong competition.
