116 extra car parking spaces for shoppers in St Helier

116 extra car parking spaces are being created at St Helier's Esplanade car park.

The 3 hour maximum stay bays will be provided for shoppers and commuter spaces will move across the road to the Les Jardins temporary car park.

The Jersey Development Company is preparing the Esplanade Car Park site for the construction of the next office building in the International Finance Centre development.

The additional spaces will help accommodate an increase in shoppers in the run-up to Christmas, as well as providing alternative parking options when Minden Place car park is refurbished next year.

Work to extend the Les Jardins car park to ensure commuters didn’t lose any parking started some time ago. We are fortunate that we had enough space left in the Esplanade car park to provide additional, much-needed shopper parking.

I am very pleased that we have been able to work with the Department for Infrastructure to increase shopper car parking numbers in the area.
