What is a District?

The Isle of Wight Council has divided the Island into six main Districts for the purposes of delivering this highway service under the Contract.  We will be improving the highways, footways, bridges and lighting in all six Districts to ensure they are all brought up to the required standards at the same time.  Therefore, no one part of the Island will have preference over another and all areas will be treated equally.


District 1 - Cowes

District 2 - Newport

District 3 - Ryde

District 4 - Sandown & Shanklin

District 5 - Ventnor

District 6 - Yarmouth 


District Stewards manage works in each of these areas and establish a close working relationship within local communities.
