Planning petition to go before Tynwald

MHK picks up planning petition

The fairness of the Island's planning system will be subject to scrutiny, if an MHK gets his way.

West Douglas member Chris Thomas has picked up a petition for redress of grievance, which was presented by Philip and Kirree Jenkins at Tynwald Day 2014.

The couple say there are weaknesses and ambiguity in the practices and laws relating to planning, building control and connected matters.

Mr Thomas will this week try and get Tynwald to set up a committee to look at the matter.
