The Isle of Wight council (IWC) recently approved plans (25 in favour and 14 against) to introduce a £1 overnight charge for all chargeable on-street and off-street parking areas.
OnTheWight has put together a comprehensive list of all locations where this new charge will come into force.
Although the notices tied to lamp posts around the Island “This Notice will come into effect from 06 April 2019”, the IWC have confirmed to OnTheWight say they do not yet have a date for when the £1 overnight charge.
However, they do say it’ll be introduced in the coming weeks and further announcements nearer the time.
Below is the comprehensive list as provided to us by Isle of Wight council. Note some areas run 6pm-8am and others 6pm-10am.

Surprisingly, the list includes Blackgang Viewpoint car park, which doesn’t currently charge at any time of the day for parking.
The car park was also included last year, but after querying it with the IWC last year, they admitted it had been down to ‘human error’. We’re not sure what the position is this year.
Update from IWC
Following publication of the article a spokesperson has been in touch to say:

No charges are envisaged at Blackgang Viewpoint. The item appears on the list only because the Notice is a variation to the existing Parking Places Order which as you correctly note did include Blackgang. Blackgang Viewpoint Car Park has not been removed from the Parking Places Order, but there is currently no intention to change the parking arrangements there.
