Douglas Council to reduce in size

The size of Douglas Council will reduce by a third from 2020.

Council leader David Christian has successfully moved a motion which will see the number of councillors drop from 18 to 12 following the next election.

It's his third attempt to reduce the number of councillors.

Mr Christian, who has previously said the Island was overgoverned, believes it's a landmark moment.
