Relaxed parking arrangements for the festive season

Traffic and Highway Services said it is trying to make life easier for everyone to enjoy Town during the run up to, and over, the Christmas and New Year period.

The two-hour disc parking on the Albert Pier, Crown Pier and North Beach car parks has been extended to three hours on weekdays again this year, while on Saturdays, parking time restrictions at these three car parks have been suspended altogether.

The arrangements came into force on Saturday 1 December 2018 and will last until Saturday 5 January 2019, the the usual time restrictions will apply again. 

The car parks at Sir Charles Frossard House and Lukis House are also available to the public on Saturdays throughout December and from 18:00 to 22:00 on Thursdays 6, 13, and 20 December for the late night shopping events in town.

Similarly, Guernsey Harbours is making the Port Permit spaces at St Julian’s Pier (the southern side of North Beach car park) available for public parking on those days and times.

During the late-night shopping evenings, additional bus services will be running on the three Night Owl bus routes departing at 21:30 (£1 maximum fare). Further details will be available from CT Plus and at

For anyone wanting a break from shopping, Le Petit Train will be running evening Christmas light tours, details of which can be found on the Petit Train’s Facebook page. These will start and finish on the southern side of the Albert Pier it will use the area reserved for use by Public Service Vehicles during December.

A spokesperson said: “Traffic and Highways is pleased to offer additional support to traders and islanders again as they enjoy the festive season.”
