The cost of parking will go up by 14% in the island
Islanders will be able to park for half price in Jersey if you have a low emissions vehicle.
It's not good news for everyone though as parking fees are going up by 14%.
The Minister responsible says the changes are down to a States decision to take more money from the department to pay for other things.
Members voted to ask Transport and Technical Services to spend £1 million on public projects such as an eastern cycle track.
But that leaves a hole in the departments finances; and its claimed making you pay more to park your car is the best way to plug it.
The increases are more than the cost of living. Each parking card goes up by 8p, and season tickets by more than £12.
But if you've got a low emissions vehicle, such as an electric car, you'll be able to enjoy half price parking.
Vehicles eligible for the half price parking are those emitting less than 100g of CO2/km or Hybrid vehicles emitting less than 120g of CO2/km.
If you have a low emissions vehicle you need to go to the Parking Control office in Sand Street car park.

Will the increase in the cost of parking in Jersey affect you? Would you consider an eco car because of the reduced cost of parking it?

Ben doesn't use his car much then to travel "all the way" from home into St. Helier. Does he really think that putting up prices will discourage car use - in the absence of a decent transport system, how will people get to work, drop the kids off at school, shop etc? They've no choice - a car is unfortunately essential.

About time too, Parking prices need to increase significantly so they are above the UK. Jerseys a small island with too many cars yet the only thing cheaper in Jersey than the UK is parking, diesel and petrol, we need to discourage car use, not encourage it.
