So why isn't Camlork suitable for development? Other than some people just don't want building in their backyards.

Possibly because all the storm water runs of the fields and dumps it on Strang road, this is already overloading the existing drainage system which at the time installed was probably capable, the storm drains run through peoples property on the lower side to reach the river thus causing untold problems for the residents of Strang road. If you are in doubt go up Strang road after a few days of heavy rain and see if I am correct.

But how many marshes and flood plains have Dandara been happy to build on to date? 

Not defending them in any way but land drainage engineering and knowledge has hugely increased as well of course to be fair, what used to be considered unsuitable building land can now be rendered usable with the appropriate technology.

You could also add that the access is appalling too.  Strang Road obviously speaks for itself.    Mount Rule Road is as bad (there's also flooding problems at Strang crossroads very regularly) and the other potential access would be the TT course.   Er........no.

Didn't the proposal for Camlork come with a new road? Like the Ballasalla one?

It was the world’s simplest thing to fix. 

Coded or tokened barrier gate on the exit. You get the code or token from the ward or dept you visited.

a bit like Westmoreland a Road...

Westmorland road doesn’t work all that well, the code gets changed at most once a week and it’s obvious some sort of code sharing is going on, because by 9.30am the car park is absolutely full.

As for Nobles, people car sharing and using the bus should be actively encouraged, it just needs to be moved away from the main car park and to the likes of the overflow instead.

Every time I've ever used it the code has been 1030
