The Isle of Wight (Parking Places) Order 2020
Decision Maker: Cabinet
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
The Monitoring Officer confirmed that the proposed Order was lawful. A previous decision by Full Council in February 2020 had provided for additional income from the use of on-street parking and off-street car parks. However there were some inconsistencies in different areas. The reports sought to address these. It was accepted that parking was an emotive subject, and some genuine concerns had been raised during the consultation, however the principle of the report was to bring fairness and consistency. Some questions had been received from the public which had already been dealt with under Public Questions.
The Corporate Scrutiny Committee had noted the recommendations in the report, however the Chairman of that committee asked whether the sailing club could have a dispensation from parking charges. The Chairman indicated that if there were any special cases these could be considered, and the Cabinet Member would have ongoing dialogue with such people.
To adopt option (ii) and to agree: -
(ii) To approve the changes to parking places as set out in the Isle of Wight Council (Parking Places) Order 2020 at appendix 4 and implement as soon as practically possible.
