Manx National Heritage slams tram decision

Fri, 22 Jan 2016

Manx National Heritage says it’s “extremely disappointed” at today’s announcement to scrap the horse trams.

It says the decision to scrap the tramway is contrary to reassurances it’s had previously from Douglas Council about safeguarding it.

It says whilst it recognises the difficult financial conditions it’s disappointed the council isn’t seeing the opportunities presented in the new Destination Management Plan.

MNH says the tramway – which has been running for 139 years – remains an important part of the visitor economy.
