Thu, 21 Feb 2013

The opposition of three Rushen MHK’s has proved not enough and the Southern Area Plan has been given the go ahead in Tynwald.


The plan outlines a series of developments for areas in the south, with the sticking point being a housing development for Ballakilley

MHK’s Laurence Skelly, Juan Watterson and Phil Gawne outlined their opposition to the plans, with the DEFA Minister expressing a desire to see more sports and recreational facilities in the area.


In the end they were greatly outvoted in favour of the works, 28 to four.
