Onchan residents asked views on new byelaws

Onchan residents are being asked their views about proposed new laws to reduce nuisances in the area.

Onchan District Commissioners want to update their byelaws on excessive noise, touting and ball games, as well as other issues which can be an inconvenience to some residents.

Those caught breaking the byelaws could face a fine of up to £2,500.

The new byelaws would replace some regulations which have been in place since 1991, bringing the legislation more up to date.

The public consultation period runs until May 5th, with locals able to make comments in writing or via email to the Commissioners, before the byelaws will go before Tynwald for approval.
