Promenade parking to be discussed in House of Keys

Parking on Douglas promenade will be one of the main topics at next week's sitting of the House of Keys.

Douglas East MHK Clare Bettison will ask Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer what temporary parking will be available during the reconstruction of the road.

The Department are currently working on plans for a major scheme to improve the promenade.

Cars are often parked on both sides of the promenade, but parking has been suspended along the sections undergoing short-term resurfacing work in the next couple of weeks.

Meanwhile, Onchan member Rob Callister wants to know how much the extra parking on the promenade will cost over Christmas.

Additional spaces are provided along the walkway during the busy shopping period, but motorists have to use pay and display machines to park there.

Mr Harmer will provide the information when the House sits on Tuesday.
