Paid Parking Proposals Could Be Thrown Out

19th June 2015

Proposals to introduce paid parking could be thrown out again.

The Environment Department hasn’t included a paid parking clock in its funding proposals for its Integrated Transport Strategy.

The Environment Department wanted to introduce hourly charges for long stay car parks in St Peter Port, but deputies instead voted for an annual clock, charged at up to £50.

Since then, the Department has looked at all of the options and worked out how much money it will raise compared to other aspects of the Integrated Transport Strategy, and decided it’s not worth pursuing the idea of paid parking clocks.

Instead, it’s suggesting an emissions based first registration duty and raising fuel duty by more 5.5p a litre on petrol and 7.5pence a litre on diesel.

The  proposals are contained in the July billet and can be found at gov.gg
