Free disc parking on walkway to support local economy over festive period

by LC

The Department of Infrastructure is backing efforts to support the local economy over the festive period by offering free disc parking on part of the Douglas Promenade walkway.

The area between the War Memorial and the Bottleneck will become a designated disc parking zone from, Thursday 23 November 2017, until Monday 8 January 2018 to provide additional spaces for Christmas shoppers.

Motorists will be able to park free of charge on the walkway for up to two hours by displaying a parking disc. No parking over two hours will be permitted.

Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer MHK said: ‘The Department is keen to play its part in encouraging people to shop local and support the Manx economy. Consequently, we are prepared to provide additional free disc parking during what is the busiest time of year for many retailers.’
