Drivers face annual parking fee

Motorists in Guernsey could have to pay an annual, rather than an hourly, charge for paid parking if the States approve new proposals.

The plans submitted by the Environment Department would see islanders pay 26 for an annual parking disc.

But Environment Minister Deputy Peter Sirrett has said he wants the new scheme to be a smooth process.

"We aim to make the system easy to implement, and one that will bring in enough finance for the department."

In 2006 the House had already agreed to a 15p an hour charge, but the States has been told this amount is now unfeasible.
