SENIOR Isle of Wight Councillors have rejected a call to reconsider changes to parking charges.

The Isle of Wight Council scrutiny committee last month recommended the executive carry out a full review of the parking strategy, before making any changes.

They also called for the decision on any changes to be put before the full council.

Members of the Isle of Wight Council Executive tonight (Tuesday) rejected that recommendation however, voting 6 to 2 against reconsidering the plans.

It means the Isle of Wight Council is set to go ahead with the controversial plans to introduce charges at Appley and Puckpool, The Heights and Medina leisure centres, Carisbrooke, Wootton, Seaview and Totland.

They will also increase the cost of parking in line with their original decision, made last month, as set out below:
