THERE are no legal restrictions preventing the sale of Blackgang's Viewpoint car park to the owners of Blackgang Chine, the Isle of Wight Council has said.

Responding to suggestions the car park may have been created with cash from the Rees Jeffrys Road Fund, which would have to be re-paid if the car park was sold, the Isle of Wight Council said that was not the case.

Strategic assets manager Barry Cooke said: "A full report on legal title, which revealed there were no restrictions on the council’s ownership, was undertaken."

The car park is being sold with a guarantee parking will not be reduced. The chine says it wants to introduce new facilities there.
