Planning committee turns down request 

An application by the Department of Infrastructure to alter bus stops at the Parade in Castletown has been turned down by the planning committee.

The works were proposed to allow buses to pull 'fully' into the kerbside next to the Douglas-bound stop, by building out the footpath from the existing kerb.

On the opposite side, the DoI had planned to relocate the bus shelter to allow the public to get on transport directly from the pavement.

However, Castletown Commissioners had voiced strong objections to the proposal, and want the Douglas-bound stop to be relocated to Farrant's Way.

Despite the planning officer's report recommending the application be approved, on Monday 29 April the planning committee decided to reject it.

Committee chairman, Tim Baker MHK, who's also a member of the department, left the room whilst the decision was made.
