PLANS for a multi-million business park and 75-bed hotel near the airport have been revealed.
A report on the proposed development, from Isle of Man Enterprises, which owns Shoprite, is in today’s Manx Independent.
The front page lead story is about the aftermath of the floods. One car dealer has had more than 100 cars written off after his business was hit.
The Manx Independent also talks to a man who says his mother was ‘neglected’. She was injured and had to go to hospital. The page three picture certainly is striking.
The week’s news also includes proposals to tighten regulations on smoking, reports from this week’s House of Keys sitting, including the latest on the bus dispute, and a report on a petition demanding more taxpayer money should go to the Third World.
Our 12-page entertainments and features section, What, Where, When, looks at a forthcoming production of Annie Jr. We preview the appearance of Tony Benn, the veteran UK Labour Party stalwart, who will be talking at the Gaiety next month, and we look forward to the Three Legs Festival.
There is also our usual two pages of What’s On.
Sports coverage includes a home win for cross country champion Keith Gerrard. Other highlights include the Postman’s Walk.
