The rules for the use of Government-run car parks and on-street parking have been changed to enable a better response to the coronavirus.
Until further notice:
- there are no time restrictions or charges for using Government-run car parks, on-street time restrictions should still be respected as should the rules around unloading bays and disabled parking
- Patriotic Street Car Park is for the use of health workers only
- parking on Gloucester Street is for emergency health parking only
The Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Kevin Lewis, said: “Introducing the parking rules usually applied on Sundays and bank holidays will enable our resources to be focused on essential Island services, but I would remind all islanders to please continue to respect the rules around disabled and parent child spaces and action will still be taken if any cars are parked dangerously or illegally.
“Patriotic Street and Gloucester Street parking will be for the exclusive use of health workers only, so that these individuals are able to continue to carry out the vital job of caring for islanders during these unprecedented times.”
