Prom walkway parking begins today

Motorists can park on the promenade walkway in Douglas from today.

To make sure extra spaces are available for Christmas shoppers, the Department of Infrastructure allows parking between the War Memorial and Bottleneck Car Park from now until January 8th.

The section will be a free-of-charge disc zone with a two-hour limit.

The Department says it hopes the extra parking will encourage shoppers to support local retailers over the festive period.
