As Christmas approaches, some parking time limits in Town will be changing once again to make it easier for Islanders to enjoy the festivities in St Peter Port and support local businesses.
From Saturday 21 November until Sunday 3 January, a number of 2-hour parking spaces will be extended to 3-hours. This is around ten days earlier than in previous years to give extended support over the festive period to the retail and hospitality sectors who have been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
At North Beach, all parking other that those spaces that are normally designated as a 10-hour time limit will temporarily change to 3-hour spaces.
The 3-hour limits will also apply to spaces at Albert and Crown Piers, other than those designated as long-term small car parking.
Parking times in the area to the West side of the New Jetty Terminal building will also be changed from the normal 30-minute parking spaces to 3-hour parking. This will mean a total of twenty eight 3-hour parking spaces being made available for shoppers and six 30-minute parking spaces remaining for anyone wishing to undertake a brief visit to places such as the Passport Office and Condor Ferries.
Some 3-hour parking spaces by the Model Yacht Pond, at the area adjacent to the rowing skiffs between Guernsey Divers and the "Fishy Tails" café, will be changed to 10-hour parking to increase capacity for those working in Town.
Members of the public will also be able to park at both Sir Charles Frossard House and Lukis House on Saturday 21st and 28th November and every Saturday in December as well as between 18:00-22:00 on Thursdays 26th November, 3rd, 10th, and 17th December for late night shopping. Members of the public may also park here between 10-4 on Sunday 20th December. Similarly, Guernsey Harbours are also making available the Port Permit spaces at St Julian's Pier (southern side of North Beach car park) for public parking on these days/times and this includes some Accessible Parking on the south side of the road.
Furthermore, the 10-hour spaces at North Beach will also be de-regulated on a Saturday, meaning drivers will not be required to move their vehicle by 8am if they have parked overnight on the Friday.
An additional service will operate on the three Night Owl bus routes (N1, N2 & N3), leaving the Town Terminus at 21:30 on the late-night shopping evenings. Further details will be available online from www.buses.gg or by emailing email@example.com.
