Meeting about plans for Ramsey estuary

The Isle of Man government is holding a public meeting about plans to make the Ramsey estuary a site of special scientific interest.

It will be held at Ramsey Grammar School on 30 September at 1930 BST.

People will be able to discuss the proposals with the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture.

The department has said the estuary is home to many molluscs, worms and crustacea as well as supporting resident and migrant birds.

Fish including salmon, sea trout and European eels also pass through the site.

The Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture said it wants to preserve the estuary and its contents for future generations.

People with an interest in the proposals are being urged to write to the department by 25 October.

If the proposals are confirmed, normal harbour operations will continue and angling activities, will continue, the department said.
