Chief Minister defends planning stance

There has been a vigorous response from the Chief Minister to remarks made by the Director of Manx National Heritage on some planning decisions.

Edmund Southworth is urging people to submit their views to the public consultation on planning and the economy, which ends in just under a fortnight's time.

In particular, he's worried planning restrictions may be eased to support the construction industry at the expense of the Island's landscape.

Allan Bell has defended his governments stance.
