The main towns in District 1 are Cowes and East Cowes, they provide important transport links to the Island for ferries from Southampton.
Described as the ‘home of world yachting’, Cowes hosts the internationally important Cowes Week every August. We will be making sure that our teams are well prepared for these events, and will provide extra staff to ensure that high standards of cleanliness are maintained at these times.
District 1 covers the electoral divisions of: Cowes Medina, Cowes North, Cowes South and Northwood, Cowes West and Gurnard and Whippingham and Osbourne. It includes: Cowes and East Cowes Town Councils, Gurnard Parish Council, Northwood Parish Council and Whippingham Parish Council.
Island Roads teams will ensure that key tourist attractions such as Osbourne House are not impacted by our works during the peak tourist season.
