PAG Public Meeting
Area Plan for the East
a presentation by
Head of IOM Planning Policy
7.30 p.m. Monday 27th March 2017
Manx Legion Club, Market Hill, Douglas
The meeting is free and open to all.
The government wants everyone to be aware of future planning development in the Island. This is especially so in the Eastern area of the Island where half the population lives - Douglas, Braddan, Onchan, Garff (Laxey & Lonan wards), Marown and Santon.
The built and natural environment is important to us all and it changes over time. The islands Strategic Plan identified the need for 5,100 additional dwellings over the period 2011 to 2026 of which 2440 were allocated to the East. Some have already been built with other suitable sites being submitted by landowners, builders, developers and government, to be considered for residential, employment, mixed use, community or open spaces.
The next stage is to inform and consult the public where those pockets of land are. That's what Diane Brown, Head of Planning Policy will explain at a PAG meeting on the 27th March.
