Parking concerns: the Manx public speaks

Isle of Man residents have voiced their concerns on issues relating to parking.

The Department of Infrastructure carried out a consultation on problems faced by the public, in roads and elsewhere on the Island.

Among the issues raised by the public there was a high demand for extra parking in Douglas, as well as in Peel, Castletown and Ramsey; a need for parking to be better policed; and there was a call for larger vehicles to be kept away from residential areas.

The department plans to develop polices to tackle those issues, reduce congestion and ensure illegal parking is dealt with in the right way.

Infrastructure Minister David Cretney says the results will help his department create a new strategy which meets the needs of the public in a cost effective manner.
