On the Isle of Man, a campaign group opposed to a proposed £100 million marina in Ramsey says recently submitted revised plans for the scheme have not allayed their concerns.

The new plans by Ramsey Marina Ltd see the original design effectively rotated through 90 degrees and reduced in size from 12 hectares down to 7.

The company claims "fake news" has spread about the scheme and believes their project could actually benefit wildlife in the area as well as providing economic benefits for the town.

Founder of Save the Bay, Geoff Court, disputes that, and says members of the group aren't opposed to any form of development in the town.

This according to Manx Radio which includes a link to a podcast from the group.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
