With the expected implementation of Phase 4 of lockdown on Saturday 30th May 2020, parking disc zones in some main St Peter Port car parks have been changed to reflect the additional time that shoppers may need due to social distancing.
Since the start of lockdown, parking disc zones have not been enforced. But as we move through the phases of Guernsey's Framework for exiting lockdown and non-essential retail businesses are able to re-open, parking restrictions and enforcement will once again be necessary.
Traffic and Highway Services can confirm that from Monday 1st June, the 2 Hour Parking disc zones on North Beach, Victoria (Crown) Pier and Albert Pier will be changed to 3 Hour Parking disc zones.
This change is being made in recognition that with social distancing still being applicable in shops, shoppers may find that it takes longer to run their errands. The extension of parking durations at these locations will therefore allow shoppers extra time to carry out these errands.
A Bailiwick Law Enforcement spokesman said:
"As the Bailiwick prepares to take a step closer to normality and enter phase four on Saturday, disc zone restrictions on parking spaces will return. It is normal for these restrictions to exist, and with traffic expected to increase in phase four, it is appropriate for them to be re-imposed."
