Accessible Parking (Blue Badge) and Transport
- For further information on medicals disabilities and driving, follow this link.
- Disc Parking zones are identified by blue signs bearing the words 'Disc Zone' which define the amount of time you can park in that zone.
- You must use a parking clock to indicate your time of arrival, day or night, when parking in a disc zone.
- The time limit for that particular place starts from the time you parked your vehicle.
- You must set your parking clock at the time you arrive, to fail to set your clock at the correct time or re-set your clock without moving your vehicle is an offence for which you could be issued with a fixed penalty notice.
- You must not park for longer than the specified period for that parking place unless that period ends after 6pm, in which case you may park until 8am the following morning - i.e. park in a 2 hour park at 7am, set your clock for 07.00, and move by 9am as the 2 hour period ends after 8am. Park in the same place at 5pm, set you clock for 17.00 and you can stay until 8am because the period ends after 6pm.
- Having left a disc-parking zone you must not park within the same zone for 30 minutes.
- Disc parking zones are in half-hour, hour, two-hour, three hour, five-hour, or ten-hour time limits. There are also 'approved parking zones' which are for 23-hour periods and do not require a parking clock to be displayed.

- Parking clocks are available for purchase from Driver & Vehicle Licensing Bulwer Avenue office, the Information Centre, the Police Station, most garages, and a number of other retail outlets.
- Residents of streets with a disc-parking zone may benefit from a Residents Parking Permit. Details can be found below.

Small Car Parking
- The Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure wish to encourage the use of smaller vehicles in the Island as they can bring environmental benefits and are better suited to our narrow roads. As part of its Road Transport Strategy it has introduced small car parking schemes at Salerie Corner, North Beach, Albert Pier, Crown Pier, Cornet Street and Candie Road, and soon at Mignot Plateau that provide dedicated preferentially located parking spaces for small cars near St Peter Port town centre.
- For further information of the scheme and examples of the types of vehicle that are entitled to use the bays follow this link. Drivers are reminded that it is a requirement of the scheme for drivers to park their vehicle entirely within the markings of the bay.
