New name for Newport Parish Council

The go ahead has been given to the addition of Carisbrooke to the name of Newport Parish Council.

It follows a two-week public consultation – and was approved tonight (Wednesday) by a meeting of the Isle of Wight Council.
 
The Full Council agreed the title change - which followed an initial request from Newport Parish Council to change its name to Newport and Carisbrooke Parish Council.
 
The change will not affect any other aspect of the running of Newport Parish Council – and all existing wards and elected members will remain as they are.
 
Residents’ views were invited over a two-week period from 23 July to 6 August.
 
There were seven responses, six for the name change and one against.

Newport Parish Council was formed in 2008 and currently has 14 elected members, taking in the Island’s county town and neighbouring Carisbrooke.
