Request for carpark to be cross-hatched

If you feel you need the carpark cross-hatched outside the access to prevent vehicles/persons blocking it, the Isle of Wight Council will consider each request but is under no obligation to authorise.  If the request is approved, all related costs will be charged to the home/business owner.  To request more information about cross hatching for your access click here to use the send a message to service form.

Problems Paying

The Licence will be terminated if the Licence Fee remains overdue for any period equal to or longer than 14 days (whether or not formally demanded) and no further use of the access must be made.  If the Licensee fails to close the access, then the Isle of Wight Council will be forced to block off the access as its use could pose a risk to anyone using the access, other car park users or their property.
