MHK stresses importance of infrastructure for Ballasalla development

Planning application for 282 new homes submitted this week

An MHK for Arbory, Castletown and Malew believes infrastructure is a vital part of plans for a housing development in the south of the Island.

Dandara has submitted a planning application for the first phase of a 282-home development and by-pass road in Ballasalla.

It's hoped work on the project will get underway later this year.

Graham Cregeen insists the development is about more than just new homes.
