During PPA operational hours:

  • all streets are subject to parking controls
  • vehicles may only park on the public highway if they are displaying a valid permit for that PPA

Find out where our PPAs are located and what times they’re operational.

Operational times

  • operational times of the PPA are indicated on entry signs as you enter the area
  • residents and their visitors are given priority throughout the hours of operation

Bays and markings

  • there are generally no marked bays in a PPA
  • however additional bays can be introduced, or retained where they already exist
    • this includes time limited free bays, loading bays or disabled bays
  • these bays will be marked out and signed appropriately
  • residents are able to park across their dropped kerbs (vehicle crossovers) during the operational hours with a valid permit

How PPA permits work

A vehicle displaying a resident permit or visitor voucher will be able to park:

  • anywhere within the area
  • in a marked bay outside the area which has a sign which restricts parking to permit holders with the appropriate permit identifier (such as HB1, HB2)

Even with a permit, you can’t park:

  • on a yellow line restriction when the restriction applies
  • in a disabled bay (unless a valid blue badge is displayed)
  • in a limited time waiting or loading bay (the rules on the sign must be followed)
  • in a motorcycle bay 

A PPA parking permit does not:

  • give the holder the right to park outside a particular premises
  • does not necessarily guarantee an available parking space

Footway parking

  • parking on the footway is only allowed where there are blue signs indicating you may do so
  • if the sign states “in marked bays” then you must park within a marked bay

In some locations (St Helier PPAs), there are signs for footway parking that are two-wheels up or that show all four wheels on the footway.

If the blue sign has a red line across it

It means the “exemption allowing you to park on the footway ends here". 

This means that from that point vehicles must park all four wheels on the highway and parking on the footway is no longer allowed. 

You must park as directed by the sign and take care that you:

  • don’t block the pavement 
  • don’t block dropped kerbs that provide access to driveways (unless you have the permission of the householder)
  • don’t block dropped kerbs in locations that provide a place for pedestrians to cross
