A second protest will take place in Peel this afternoon against regeneration works at Market Place.
 
Government's Town and Village Regeneration scheme have replaced a red sandstone wall with tiers of Chinese white sandstone steps - much to the dismay of residents.
 
Proposals for Market Place and Douglas Street were drawn up and displayed publicly in July 2014 before a planning application was submitted.
 
The scheme received planning approval in August last year - however Peel residents highlighted their concerns at a protest outside the site last weekend.
 
The second demonstration will take place at Market Place at 2.30pm.
