ISLANDERS can hold on to their pounds for a few weeks longer, with overnight parking charges not due to start until early June.

The controversial overnight fee, brought in under the latest budget proposals, looked set to come into force from April 6, with signs appearing across the Island.

However, some residents reported issues with machines not accepting the right amount of change.

Isle of Wight County Press:

Now the council has said due to requirements for new street signage and machine software, it is likely the start date for all on and off-street overnight charges will be early June.

A council spokesperson said: “The Isle of Wight Council has a statutory duty to display an official notice indicating new chargeable hours.

“The notices are effective from April 6 but they do not state charges are implemented from then.

Isle of Wight County Press:

“People are advised to check the tariff boards as these will be changed to indicate overnight charging has started.”
