Douglas bus station should be DOI priority says MHK

Faragher says it shouldn't be responsibility of a private developer

A bus station for Douglas should be the responsibility of the Department of Infrastructure according to one MHK.

The Planning Committee is currently considering plans by a private developer which include an indoor bus information centre on Lord Street.

The last facilities there were demolished in 2002.

Douglas East member Joney Faragher says the DoI should be the ones leading on the project.

Amy Griffiths has this report: 

Manx Radio contacted the Isle of Man Government for comment and was told a response would be provided in next week's Tynwald sitting (18 June).
