The British Car Parking Awards 2011.

Big news for the Gascoyne Way car park in Hertford. It’s been shortlisted in the Best Refurbishment category in the British Car Parking Awards. Yes, there is such a thing and Hugh Dennis from out of ‘Outnumbered’ will be giving out the gongs this year. At the InterContinental in Park Lane, no less!

The ¬£800,000 refurbishment means that Hertford’s flagship multi-storey now has bigger spaces, electric charging points and upgraded CCTV.

“We’re delighted to be shortlisted for this prestigious award,” said Councillor Mike Carver, Executive member for planning policy and transport.

“We spent a great deal of time and effort choosing the right contractor and creating a design that would future proof the car park and it’s great to see this recognised on a national level.

The winners are announced on March 11. It’s by no means in the bag. Gascoyne Way is going head to head with Gatwick Airport Long Stay South and Bold Lane, Derby to name but two.

Nothing for Swingate, Danesgate, Daneshill, Southgate or St George’s. There’s always the¬†British Car Parking Award 2012, I suppose…

I can’t help but think ‘if only there were a blogging category’. Modesty aside I reckon I’d be in with a shout for a Commended or something. If anyone knows anyone at the BCPA, put in a good word won’t you?
