Parking in St Helier
« on: April 25, 2012, 03:56:06 AM »


St Helier residents parking ( RPZ ) championed by Constable Crowcroft is relatively new.

Let us not forget the old system of paycards that allowed a visit to a house in St Helier, or maybe a call out by tradesman,  just put a paycard up. More importantly parking was free between 6 pm and 8 am weekdays and at weekends and bank holidays free.

Now there is no free parking, its residents or nothing in many streets. Your friendly call out plumber can purchase a temporary permit for £5.50, few bother with the hassal of going to the town hall with the time wasted.

This system costs far more than the mentioned cities  below, and Jersey prices have just been increased by 10%.  Even Westminster does not charge as much as Jersey at £231 for any type of car or size of engine. Is it really a better system ? certainly more expensive for many.
