MHK to ask about Douglas promenade future

Mon, 17 Oct 2016

An MHK will ask what the Department of Infrastructure's plans are for the future of Douglas promenade.

Douglas North member David Ashford will seek a statement from newly-appointed Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer when Tynwald sits tomorrow.

Previous plans to relocate the horse tram tracks were met with opposition, with the £21m scheme ultimately rejected by a planning inspector.

Further plans to reconstruct the highway and footpaths were withdrawn earlier this year, while more than £1m has already been spent on rejected plans for the scheme.

After the last scheme was halted in the summer, the Department announced it was planning to submit a revised application.
