Pay direct for parking permit

By a County Press reporter

Saturday, November 17, 2012


DIRECT debit payments to help spread the cost of the annual parking permit for drivers have been introduced by the Isle of Wight Council.

The 12-month permit gives drivers unlimited parking in any council-run long-stay car park, excluding Dinosaur Isle and Browns golf course.

Anyone buying the permits using direct debit will pay an initial £50 and then ten monthly instalments of £50 or a total bill of £550.

The cost works out at around £1.60 a day, significantly cheaper than buying a pay and display ticket. Currently, it costs £6.60 to park in a long-stay car park for more than six hours a day.

Motorists also have the option of paying £500 up front for the annual permit. There are also options to buy three-month and six-month permits, although direct debit payments are not available on these.

Anyone wishing to buy a permit can contact parking services on 01983 823714, visit a council help centre or log on to for more information.
