Please see updates form Traffic & Highway Services re viewing the Christmas lights (driving down through town) and accessible parking.
Wednesday 27 November 2019
Traffic & Highway Services has once again, granted a general permission to allow members of the public to drive through Town.
This provides elderly members of the community and people with disabilities an opportunity to see the Christmas Lights.
Permits do not need to be obtained from Traffic & Highway Services for vehicular access to Smith Street, the High Street, Le Pollet, Mill Street and Mansell Street. This is only permitted between 18:00 and 22:00 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday evenings from Sunday 1st December through to Wednesday 1stJanuary 2020.
Whilst drivers are permitted to travel in either direction along Smith Street, drivers must only travel in the direction of the Town Church when driving along Le Pollet or the High Street. Drivers are also reminded that the above listed roads are all subject to a 12mph speed limit.

As Christmas approaches, Traffic and Highway Services is making it easier for Islanders to enjoy the festivities in St Peter Port. From Saturday 30th November, changes will be made to parking arrangements in Town over the festive period to enable people to spend more time shopping and socialising.
These will remain in place until Saturday 4th January 2020.
All of the 2-hour disc parking at the Albert Pier, Crown Pier and North Beach car parks will be extended to 3-hour disc parking. In addition to this, the parking restrictions for the 10-hour spaces on North Beach will be removed on Saturdays. This means that there is no time limit on the length of time a vehicle can remain parked in those spaces, and that people parking their vehicles in this area on a Friday will not have to move by 8:00 on Saturday morning.
Members of the public will also be able to park at both Sir Charles Frossard House and Lukis House on Saturday 30th November and every Saturday in December as well as between 18:00-22:00 on Thursdays 5th, 12th, and 19th December for late night shopping. Similarly, Guernsey Harbours are also making available the Port Permit spaces at St Julian’s Pier (southern side of North Beach car park) for public parking on these days/times and this includes some Accessible Parking on the south side of the road.
An additional service will operate on the three Night Owl bus routes, leaving the Town Terminus at 21:30 on the late-night shopping evenings. Further details will be available online from www.buses.gg or by firstname.lastname@example.org.
