Fight continues for Clean Beaches & Bathing Waters in Peel and the West

Manx Utilities have withdrawn their planning application for sewage treatment in the West. This is so disappointing after all the efforts made over a long period of time to find a solution.

It is set against the the backdrop of Tynwald approving the latest EU bathing standards and four beaches on the Island being designated as clean bathing beaches.

It is incredible that Peel is still pumping raw sewage, wet wipes and plastics into our sea with the damage that causes our wildlife and natural environment. For Peel and the West this is fight we must continue.

Plans for Proposed New Science and Technology Block at QEII High School On Display

The plans for the proposed Science and Technology Block will be available to view in the school’s foyer from Tuesday 22 to Friday 25 September.

The two floor extension will provide science laboratories, workshops and classrooms, together with a large flexible space linking it to the existing school building.

The proposal develops a sustainable, low carbon building, which complements and inspires the science and technology classes it will accommodate.

It is designed around a central spine which will provide collaborative teaching and study areas, serving as break-out spaces from the adjacent teaching areas. The building would be built on the west of the school and face Douglas Road.
