DoI faces criticism over Peel Harbour

Tynwald approves three year plan

Infrastructure chiefs who came under fire over the dredging of Peel Harbour will bring forward a planned maintenance programme for Peel marina to go before Tynwald in the New Year.

That's after the court approved a motion seeking to outline plans for the site over the next three years.

It follows a policy review committee investigation which also asked DoI officials to submit proposals for the replacement of the temporary storage facility at Rockmount on the Poortown Road.

The marina was dredged in April last year and the materials taken to Rockmount after a build-up of silt meant some berths were unusable.

Earlier this year, the committee said the department had failed to manage their maintenance work over a number of years, causing potential environmental and financial risks.
