Who we are and what we stand for
The Vectis Party is a political party dedicated to promoting and improving the Isle of Wight for the benefit of the residents that live there. The party believes in two central tenets; Localism and Decentralisation. Ultimately the party believes that local institutions, primarily a strengthened Isle of Wight Council, should be delegated competencies in a number of key policy areas that would most benefit from local knowledge. These policy areas include:
Health & Social Care
Planning & Housing
Economic Development (Industry, Agriculture, Tourism and Small Business)
The Vectis Party is made up of ordinary residents from across the Isle of Wight from a range of different backgrounds. Our aim is to harness the creative ability and technical knowhow of local people in order to produce a political movement that gives the unique character of the Island the standard bearer it deserves.
