Barriers have been installed about a month ago at six car parks in Skegness in a bid to prevent travellers setting up camp in the town, a recent news report in the local business media has been able to reveal.
In January, East Lindsey District Council’s executive board agreed to install the barriers after travellers illegally stayed on foreshore car parks in Skegness last summer.
As a result, 340 car parking spaces were lost – a potential loss of income to the council of £14,280.
The council had pusued those who illegally occupied the car parks through temporary injunctions but said this had limited benefit as the unauthorised occupation continued.
A spokesman for the council said: “The council gave a commitment to the community that it would take action to improve foreshore car park security and it is doing so with the installation of height barriers to help prevent unauthorised occupation.”
Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles has an extensive experience in creating advanced, reliable, yet quite affordable access restriction solutions for car parks.
The vehicle barriers developed by Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles can work in any weather, are able to immediately recognise authorised personnel and are supplied complete and ready to accept power and data connections, meaning that they can be easily interlinked with a new or existing access control system. Plus, boom arms are available in a number of different lengths to suit various road widths.
Last, but certainly not least, it’s important to mention that the automatic car park barriers supplied by Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles can also be fitted with a number of useful extras, such as a folding arm mechanism, impact release mechanism or hanging racks / barrier skirts.
