Free parking on Prom walkway this Xmas

Shoppers in Douglas will have additional free parking for up to two hours throughout the festive period.

Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer confirmed the decision in the House of Keys yesterday morning, and said it was made to encourage Islanders to shop local and support the Manx economy.

He was responding to a question from Onchan MHK Rob Callister - who had been misled by an online news article stating drivers may be forced to pay for parking.

But Mr Harmer dismissd the claims.

Free parking will be available on Douglas promenade walkway from December 9 2016 to January 8 2017.
