23-hour Approved Parking in Fermain Road, Rue De Putron & Becquet Road, St Peter Port

Share this page

Friday 28 February 2020

In response to complaints of vehicles being left for long periods or abandoned, the Committee for the Environment and Infrastructure is proposing to introduce approximately 60 23-hour approved parking spaces in Fermain Road, Rue De Putron, and Becquet Road in St Peter Port.

This proposal will replace the existing unregulated parking following concerns from the public. It will not result in any loss of parking capacity.

Public concerns have been raised over an extended period. They have centred on vehicles being parked for long periods and vehicles that have been abandoned.

Traffic and Highway Services does not have the resources to install formal parking in all areas around the Island where there is unregulated parking. However, the representations from residents and users of this area span a significant period and therefore the issues have been on-going, without signs of significant improvement, for some time. For this reason, it has been decided to prioritise regulated parking for this area.

The introduction of 23-hour approved parking does not require parking discs to be displayed. It does though require a vehicle to be moved at least once every 23 hours. The parking of motorcycles is permitted.

Deputy Barry Brehaut, President of the Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure, said:

"When incidents like this occur, it is not only a nuisance but also restricts the availability of parking for other road users. The absence of regulated parking means that Guernsey Police has limited powers to deal with these issues. Guernsey Police has been consulted and are supportive of the proposal and what we are trying to achieve."

Before making a final decision, the Committee invites people to provide their feedback on this proposal. Any person wishing to comment should write to Traffic and Highway Services, PO Box 145, Bulwer Avenue, GY2 4LR or email: traffic@gov.gg to arrive no later than Monday 16th March 2020.
