Douglas Promenade Scheme - Call for Evidence

The Environment and Infrastructure Policy Review Committee is examining the progress of the Douglas Promenade refurbishment works, with particular reference to the impact on business.  The Committee took oral evidence on this topic on 19th July 2019 from representatives of the Department of Infrastructure and a number of businesses based on the Promenade. 

The Committee now invites written submissions on this topic.  The Committee is particularly interested in the following areas:

  • The impact on businesses based on the Promenade;
  • The need for compensation schemes;
  • The effectiveness of interdepartmental cooperation in regard to the works;
  • The efficacy of communications processes with businesses and Promenade users; and
  • The effective project management of major projects.

Submissions should be sent to the address below by 30th August 2019.  Email is preferred but hard copy is equally acceptable. 

Please be aware that the Committee may choose to make public any information it receives. Personal contact details are routinely redacted in advance of such publication. If there is any other information in your submission which you do not wish the Committee to publish, or which you believe the Committee should not publish, please explain this in your submission.

The Committee was established by Tynwald in October 2016. The Members elected to the Committee are Mr Rob Callister MHK (Chair), Miss Clare Bettison MHK, and Mr Chris Robertshaw MHK.  Mr Callister has recused himself from this inquiry because he is a member of the Department for Enterprise, one of the Departments under scrutiny.  The Committee has elected Miss Bettison as its Chair for this inquiry. 

The progress of the Committee’s inquiry can be followed via the Tynwald website
