The Isle of Wight Council (Residents’ Parking Places) Order sets out the eligibility criteria for Resident Zone parking permits. The order states that a maximum of two permits can be issued to a resident (and owner of the vehicle) of a road specified in Schedule 1 of the above order.  Permits will be issued for a 12-month period from the date of issue at the cost of £44 for motor vehicles and £11 for motor bikes. 
When issued, the permit will allow parking within the designated bays of the relevant parking zone. These bays are denoted by signage with the name of the zone stated; the permit cannot be used in any other limited waited or pay and display parking bay.

Examples of the signage denoting the Resident bays can be seen here

Visitor Permits

The issue of Visitor Permits is currently suspended in light of the Government guidance relating to COVID-19. 

At present, the public are expected to reside within their main residence and not to visit other households, unless reasonably necessary.  In view of this guidance, Visitor Permits will not be available for purchase whilst social distancing measures are in place. 

It is understood that in certain circumstances visits will be necessary to permit deliveries to residents and visits by key workers.  Those delivering goods or services may utilise the free two hour bays.  To further assist, NHS, Health and Social Care and Covid 19 Volunteers displaying proof of key worker status, in the form of an official employee letter or copy of a staff ID badge may park without time limit in the aforementioned bays.

This process will be regularly reviewed in accordance with any new Government Guidance.

Resident Parking Zone Consultation 

In 2018, The Council held a consultation on Residents Parking Zones and encouraged residents to complete an online survey and provide their views.  The council has now prepared a policy/guidance for the introduction of resident parking schemes (RPS) which sets out the process to request an RPS, the criteria for establishing the demand and ensuring that schemes only proceed where they will deliver a benefit for residents.
The new guidance for the introduction of resident parking schemes can be viewed here.
