The IOM – a potential cycling Utopia? For a small island with a small population it is surprising how congested the island's roads can become during peak travel times. Perhaps one solution to the log jams everyone must have experience at least once in places like central Douglas, is for commuters to ditch the car and travel by public transport or whenever possible, walk or cycle to work.

The government is currently working on an 'Active Travel' strategy which it is hoped, through various interventions will encourage many more residents to get out of their car and use their own leg power to propel themselves to work, the shops and to leisure activities.

For its public meeting on Monday 22 May Positive Action Group (PAG) has decided to focus on the cycling component of the strategy and have invited Roger Geffen MBE, campaigns and policy director of Cycling UK to address the meeting.

Three years ago PAG, in association with IOM Freethinkers, raised the argument for the possible legalisation of drugs. Esteemed academic, Professor David Nutt was invited to the Island and made a presentation to a packed public meeting, 'The Truth About Drugs:  A basis for a fair and rational policy?'. The YouTube video of the event has had over 12,000 views! There seemed to be considerable public support for his ideas, based as they are on evidence. Even the then Chief Minister, Allan Bell, went public in favour of liberalisation of Island drug laws.

PLANNING

Area Plan for the East

a presentation by

Diane Brown

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.
