Given the new social distancing restrictions being requested by Government, Port Erin Commissioners will be implementing the following changes to our services:
Parks & Children's Play Areas
These will remain open at this time but users are advised to maintain social distancing. Anyone using play areas is advised to bring along sanitising gel and wipes to clean hands after use. Access to play areas is under review and this position may change in the future.
We will be removing the slip way boards this week to improve access to the beach. Beach users are advised to maintain social distancing and dog walkers ensure that any faeces are picked up and disposed of in the numerous litter bins.
Water refill points
With safety and hygiene being paramount at this time we have removed our water refill points at Station Road car park and Shore Road from service with immediate effect.
Port Erin Commissioners owned car parks
We will be lifting restrictions on our car parks for the foreseeable future. We will not be issuing fines or prosecuting anyone who leaves a vehicle in one of the car parks over the current time restriction. We appreciate that as our residents follow advice to go home and stay home there may be pressure on parking within Port Erin, and we would like to make it as easy as possible for everyone. If you need to isolate, please park up and leave your car without worrying about it. We won’t be ticketing. Please note that parking on double yellow lines will still be enforced.
As there is now evidence of community transmission we will be closing the public conveniences at the following locations until further notice;
The Harbour, Station Road Car Park, Shore Road
We apologise for any inconvenience this causes, but even with increased cleaning we do not feel it is safe to keep the toilets open at the moment.
We are taking all measures possible to keep residents & staff safe during this difficult time and we thank you for your co-operation. Please continue to follow all of the latest Government advice and continue to isolate and social distance.
