Public had a say on prom - Gawne

The infrastructure minister says the views of the Manx public were fully consulted before he launched the ill-fated Douglas promenade makeover scheme.

Phil Gawne has come under fire from campaigners opposed to relocating the horse trams on the walkway, as part of the £21 million project to transform the prom.

It was dropped last week after a planning inspector's report raised serious concerns over safety.

The DoI will now submit plans for upgrading the road in stages - starting with a section from the Sea Terminal to the War Memorial.

Suggestions the department failed to make clear the full extent of the plans at public exhibition have been rejected by Mr Gawne.
