Area Plan meeting moved following school closure

A public meeting on the Area Plan for the East has been moved because of the Norovirus outbreak at Ballacottier Primary School.

Braddan Parish Commissioners had been due to hold the meeting at the Farmhill school, but the event will now take place at the Keyll Darree Auditorium at Noble's Hospital.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle and Middle MHK Bill Shimmins will both be attending the meeting, along with the Government's Head of Planning Policy and members of the Commissioners.

A consultation on the area plan has recently been extended so members of the public can respond until May 25th.

The meeting gets underway from 7pm on Thursday.
