The Full Council agreed the title change on Wednesday evening following an initial request from Newport Parish Council to change its name to Newport and Carisbrooke Parish Council.
The change will not affect any other aspect of the running of Newport Parish Council – and all existing wards and elected members will remain as they are.
Residents’ views were invited over a 2-week period from 23rd July to 6th August.
There were 7 responses, 6 for the name change and 1 against.
Newport Parish Council was formed in 2008 and currently has 14 elected members, taking in the Island’s county town and neighbouring Carisbrooke.
