Parking Permits

Residential Permits Zones

The Isle of Wight Council (Residents’ Parking Places) Order sets out the eligibility criteria for Resident Zone parking permits. The order states that a maximum of two permits can be issued to a resident (and owner of the vehicle) of a road specified in Schedule 1 of the above order.  Permits will be issued for a 12-month period from the date of issue at the cost of £44 for motor vehicles and £11 for motor bikes. 
When issued, the permit will allow parking within the designated bays of the relevant parking zone. These bays are denoted by signage with the name of the zone stated; the permit cannot be used in any other limited waited or pay and display parking bay.

Examples of the signage denoting the Resident bays can be seen here

Resident Parking Zone Consultation
In 2018, The Council held a consultation on Residents Parking Zones and encouraged residents to complete an online survey and provide their views.  The council has now prepared a policy/guidance for the introduction of resident parking schemes (RPS) which sets out the process to request an RPS, the criteria for establishing the demand and ensuring that schemes only proceed where they will deliver a benefit for residents.
The new guidance for the introduction of resident parking schemes can be viewed here.
