Good news for NHS patients on the Isle of Wight
The Park Road Car Park is conveniently located in central Cowes just a five minute walk from the Highspeed Red Jet Terminal in Fountain Yard. Any parking bay can be used provided the permit is displayed.
Roseleen Cullen, Chair of Northwood House Charitable Trust Co. Ltd. commented “We had very positive feedback during the trial. For many, not having to worry about a parking permit running out if return travel is delayed was a huge relief. Patients undergoing regular treatments really valued the cost saving. The Trustees of Northwood House are delighted that together with Cowes Town Council we can offer practical support to residents who need to leave the island for medical treatment. We would like as many people as possible to take advantage of this facility.”
Mayor Lora Peacey Wilcox added “Northwood House continues to show their commitment to supporting the Isle of Wight Community by offering patients worry-free parking in the centre of Cowes, with the administration by Cowes Town Council. Families with young children have told my team how much they value this facility, as have elderly patients. It really is making a difference.”
The scheme is administered by Cowes Town Council on behalf of Northwood House Charitable Trust. Patients should apply to Cowes Town Council in advance of travel by calling the Town Council office on 01983 209022 or visiting during office hours: 9.30am – 12.00pm, Monday to Friday.
Permits will be issued when proof of appointment is shown and must be collected before the date of use from the Town Council Office, Northwood House, Ward Avenue, Cowes PO31 8AZ.

About Northwood House
Northwood House is an iconic grade II* listed Georgian manor house set in beautiful Northwood Park in the heart of Cowes.
The Estate has a rich history of hosting events and celebrations of all kinds. Purchased in 1793 by George Ward, a successful London merchant, the House was rebuilt and extensively decorated by his son, George Henry Ward. Many lavish parties were thrown by the Wards throughout the Georgian and Victorian eras when the island was a popular destination for the royal family.
The house was gifted to Cowes Urban District Council in 1929. In 2012 Northwood House Charitable Trust Co. Ltd was established to ensure the maintenance and development of the estate for the continued benefit of the residents and visitors to Cowes.
