Views sought on Island's upland regions

Gov't wants better understanding of how people use them

Members of the public are being asked how the Island's glens, forests and hills can be managed in future.

The Department of Environment, Food & Agriculture is asking residents to give feedback on this year's outdoor visitor survey.

DEFA is then expected to use responses to it to create a better picture of how often people use the upland regions and the reason people spend their time there.

Government says the uplands are an iconic part of the Manx landscape and is the Island's largest carbon store.

Anyone wanting to have their say on the subject has until Sunday, 5 September to take part in the survey.

A link to it is available HERE.
