The £1 charge proposed for short-stay car parking at the airport will swell Ronaldsway’s coffers by just £40,000 a year.

The Manx Independent reveals the figure in this week’s paper.

Since the story was reported in the Examiner and here the decision has come under a lot of criticism.

On the front page, today’s paper reveals plans for a company that says hopes to create 50 jobs.

On page three, we talk to the organisers of the Isle of Man Festival about the event. One says he might try to organise another next year.

Further inside the paper, we talk to advocates about increasing costs in courts. They opposed a rise in fees, but Tynwald went ahead.

The paper has two special supplements this week.

We have a special all about the Parish Walk.

And we devote eight pages to our ‘Junior Journalist’ competition, in which primary school children took part.

Island Life, our usual 12-page features section looks ahead to Hairspray and includes the Isle of Man’s What’s On guide.
