Increase in parking fees

1 min read

Changes to the overnight pay-and-display parking charges are being rolled out across the Island this month.

Over the next couple of weeks, the Isle of Wight Council will be updating signs and ticket machine software to accommodate changes which will see overnight parking charges adjusted to £2 until October 31. The charge will revert to £1 from November 1 to March 31, 2023.

Motorists are advised to check the tariff board or ticket machine signage.

It is estimated changes to on- and off-street overnight parking charges will generate around £80,000 to help fund other essential council services.

Residents who live within 200 metres of a pay-and-display car park can purchase a discounted permit to park there for £198 per year, which equates to around £3.80 per week.
