COST OF PARKING ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT SET TO INCREASE BY 10P AN HOUR

The Isle of Wight Council is proposing yet another parking price hike with all tariffs set to increase by 10p per hour from 1st July 2022 – just in time for the summer holidays.

The Alliance Administration has this week released its Budget for 2022/23 with £3million of savings sought.

COST OF PARKING ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT SET TO INCREASE BY 10P AN HOUR

To help boost the Council’s coffers, motorists are once again being stung with an increase in the cost of parking.

Up to 1 hour in a Long Stay car park or on-street will soon cost £1.80, whilst up to 30 minutes in a Short Stay car park will cost £1.20 – plus fees for those paying by phone. Short stay on-street parking will rise to £1.10 for 30 minutes.

It is anticipated that the parking charge increase will generate an extra £98,900 for the local authority.

The Council says work will be done to promote more widely the wide range of permits the council offers which provide better value for money to residents than paying on a casual basis for parking.
