Pay direct for parking permit

By a County Press reporter

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 www.iwight.com for more information.
