Petition to protect UNESCO zones from development

1500 signatures back protection for special areas on IOM

A petition was presented to Policy and Reform Minister Chris Thomas on Wednesday (31st), campaigning for the protection of UNESCO zones against development.

The document contains input from people both on-island and abroad, pleading that Manx areas of outstanding natural beauty are not to be tampered with.Discussions focused particularly on the Island's Biosphere Reserve status, and the current planning consultation, which Minister Thomas is overseeing.

Petitioner Julie Billingsley has amassed almost 1,500 signatures so far, and hopes the document will continue gathering momentum.
