Parking charges are set to rise by 3.9% in Jersey, and a single unit paycard will rise from 69p to 71p.

Jersey's Transport and Technical Services Minister said the increase was based on the Retail Price Index for September.

The income from parking charges pays for the maintenance of car parks across the island.

Deputy Kevin Lewis said: "Jersey parking charges still remain some of the least expensive in Britain."

He added: "I realise that a price increase is never welcome but it is important that income keeps pace with inflation to maintain enough money to keep our car parks up to a reasonable standard. This is why we make an annual increase."

The changes come into effect on 1 February.

February season tickets were available from Monday but are charged at the new price.
