Revenue 'lost' over parking plan

Years of revenue has been lost because of Guernsey's failure to decide on whether to introduce parking charges, a former politician has said.

States members voted earlier this week to scrap plans for a scheme to help fund the island's transport strategy.

Former deputy Roy Bisson, who has opposed paid parking, claimed investigating the proposed 15p an hour charge had been a waste of time.

Parking charges were first raised in the States in the late 1980s.

Fuel duty increases have now been proposed to generate extra revenue, but laws will have to be drafted before the 1.2p a litre rise can be introduced.
