The Island Independents are a political group who stood as mutually-supporting independent candidates for the 2013 Isle of Wight Council election. The group won 15 of the 40 seats, emerging as the joint-largest group on the council, but without an overall majority.[1] The group leader is Councillor Ian Stephens.

In the 2017 local elections the group had 22 candidates standing and became the largest group in opposition with 11 councillors.


Cllr Lora Peasey Wilcox is chairman of the council. Cllr Paul Fuller is Chair for Scrutiny.
