Paid parking plans are rejected

Car park
Parking options included hourly rates and annual charges

Paid parking will not be introduced in Guernsey, after members of the States voted against bringing in charges.

If introduced, charges would have been used to fund the island's transport strategy. Members voted instead to fund it through fuel duty increases.

An additional 300,000 a year is to be given to the Environment Department to develop the island's bus services.

Laws have to be drafted before a 1.2 pence a litre increase in duty on fuel can be introduced.

Parking charge options debated included hourly parking rates and annual charges.
