A full on day – Douglas at 8.30am for a pre meeting before my first meeting with the Planning Committee. An interesting discussion based on their suggestions for changing or improving the planning system. This lead neatly to a meeting of the Environment Infrastructure Committee which looked at a number of issues affecting DEFA and DOI but also zeroed in on planning reform.
A pleasant lunchtime break lunch with the Lieutenant Governor.
Back to DEFA HQ St Johns, meeting with CEO briefing for Tynwald Tuesday, then a visit to St Marks Country Park to discuss future animal importation for the zoo/wildlife park part of the development.
