Renaming Union House Car Park as Pantiles Car Park

The old Union House car park closed in 2018 for redevelopment, but is due to reopen in July 2021.  It is proposed to rename it the ‘Pantiles Car Park’ to make it obvious that it is the closest car park for Pantiles users and will respond well to internet searches.
