About Douglas South (2011)
Douglas is the capital of the Isle of Man and the main centre of the Island's successful financial services industry. It is the home of the only tricameral - or three chambered - parliamentary system in the British Commonwealth, with the Tynwald, House of Keys and Legislative Council chambers all located in the legislative buildings on Bucks Road. Douglas took over from Castletown as the capital of the Isle of Man in 1864, and ten years later the House of Keys moved to its current home. South Douglas includes the Pulrose, Spring Valley and Anagh Coar local authority housing estates, and further residential areas at Ballaughton and farmhill. Also in the constituency are the National Sports Centre and Douglas golf course, and the industrial area along Peel Road. The current MHKs, David Cretney and Bill Malarkey, have served South Douglas since 1985 and 2006 respectively.
