    TT 2018

    Maybe not - i'm not a TT fan myself, but this is a tragic accident where a young man has died - a little respect for a loss of life isn't a lot to ask. Whether a fan of the TT or not, one's impatience to see a road opened following a death is quite appalling really.

    TT 2018

    When there's an accident in the TT, the potential severity of it really warrants a bit more consideration than comments like the above. Accidents in the TT are potentially life threatening - in this case, a young man, a good man has passed away. Above all else, all we should really wish for is for all riders to finish safely. RIP Dan, and my deepest condolences to your closest.
  3. The facts are as follows: There will be a 1.2m wide pedestrian footpath along the seawall side of the existing frontage - this is to be demarcated in a different colour from the roadway, which will have limited vehicular access, to those whom are permitted. This is a PROW, and is in place to allow the continuation of use of the coastal footpath (up to the landowners existing property, which the coastal footpath has to circumnavigate). The multiple access point to the beach are to be removed, aside from one, which is to be well away from the apartments, and access to the jetty will also be restricted (fencing with access gate) to everyone except those with prior permission i.e., the charity whom are part of the wider project, and a tourist charter boat.
  4. Fair enough, Neil - i'm not going to get drawn in to an argument with you. I have made my apologies for the reference used.
  5. Wait and see, Neil - you will see exactly what I am referring to in time (even if you don't like the reference I have made). In a visible sense, that is exactly what it will appear like unfortunately. Lots of metal, and 'directed' foot traffic with zero movement outside of what is permitted/barricaded. If you are offended by the wording used, then I will apologise for this, but I will say that there is no other visible comparison that I can come up with - if you can find me something that paints a similar visual representation, by all means make a suggestion and I will happily edit the above.
  6. Wait for the bloody big gates to be erected near the car park (check the planning application...), and then there's the restricted access. Will be just like Buchenwald!
  7. Gates? Fort Knox springs to mind...

    Why does it always have to be about politics, blame etc? The problem here is the wankers with their placards, no need to point fingers anywhere else. There are ways to set forth one's opinions, and ways not to. In this instance, the manner of the demonstrations prove little more than the protestors are low life scum with a bee in their bonnet. Funnily enough, I had always been anti abortion, until this lot came on the scene - I am now pro abortion... reckon this lot should have been aborted and removed from the human gene pool. Funny how their 'anti abortion' propaganda converted me from supporting their cause to being against it - can't wait for them to phone me...

    Countryside Care Scheme

    Yes, one and the same. Good luck with enjoying any freedom down there in future btw...

    Countryside Care Scheme

    Clearly. So, in this case, there is no financial assistance required for the landowner, no production from the landowner, and no benefit to the public who support the cost of this owners property upkeep, and all of this under the umbrella of the named 'Agricultural Development Scheme', or should that be the 'Millionaire Freeloader take the piss out of the taxpayers and IOM Government scheme' ...

    Countryside Care Scheme

    I find it distasteful when a 200 acre plot of land, owned by a multi millionaire is in receipt of CCS allowance when there is nothing produced onsite. Worse still, the land is completely private, sealed off from the public, much to the annoyance of those who wish to walk the Raad ny Foillan coastal path. All well and good having a countryside care scheme, but what's the point if the public can't enjoy the benefit of it?!
