New car parking policy being drawn up

Thu, 27 Mar 2014


A new multi-storey car park may need to be developed in Douglas to cope with the increased demand for parking spaces.

Figures from reports already compiled show there needs to be an additional 750 spaces by 2027.

Minister Laurence Skelly says other things also need to be considered before a firm policy can be drawn up:
