Electric Parking Permits to be Introduced

Jan 06, 2020


A new parking permit is being introduced to the Road Traffic (St Helier) (Jersey) Order 1996 to enable electric vehicle sharing clubs to have allocated parking spaces on public and parish roads.

The Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Kevin Lewis, has signed a Ministerial Decision to enable electric vehicles, to which the permits are issued, to park in dedicated spaces.

                

Deputy Lewis said: “The new permit is part of the framework required to enable electric vehicle sharing in Jersey, which is one of the practical initiatives set out in the

Sustainable Transport Policy (STP), which was published at the end of 2019.

“Government has made it clear that fewer vehicle journeys will be a good thing for Jersey, and we are supporting the transition to electric vehicles with free parking and more charging points.

“The States Assembly will debate the details of the Sustainable Transport Policy in due course, but in the meantime this small change will enable the private sector to develop schemes which will support the STP.”
